***Art opening reception Thursday July 16, 6PM – 10PM ***
HORS (out) is a group exhibition which showcases for the first time the work of artists Milan Sanka, Ari Kali & Kirrikoo.
« Hors » is defined as « outside », « out of », « beyond »…
This preposition became the starting point for the three artists to compile their body of work into three distinct themes, defined by each artist.
Milan Sanka // HORS SAISON (out of saison)
Definition : at the time of year when a place is less popular or fashionable.
However, artists carried on to express, to create, to reflect what makes them tick from a world where change is long overdue.
A one-of-a-kind exhibition in a particular time.
“Hors saison, j’existe, dans l’œil du cyclone.” (“Out of season, I exist, within the eye of the storm”)
Ari Kali // HORS NORME (non-standard)
Definition : individuals who are defined as non conforming, unusual.
These unconventional personalities are the main focus in the artist’s pictorial work, which pushes his vision to brand them as new icons of our contemporary era.
Kirrikoo // HORS-CADRE(S) (out of frame(s))
Definition: not in correct order or condition, incorrect.
This definition applies to the various artworks presented by the artist, ranging from sculptures to illustrations. His work questions identity, and more specifically dedicated to the black diaspora.
