Stef Kamaris: Play Dead
March 31 @ 7:00 pm - April 30 @ 11:30 pm
Curated by Florent Frizet and Nadja Geer
Cheese is time, time is money, money is monopoly: Not only in his art but also in his aphorisms Stef Kamaris formulates a critique of the commodification of capitalism. Kamaris invents instead a coherent world of his own non-representative logic that follows up the pattern of a revolutionary poetic language. This art works with poetry, semiotics and politics to create a subversive, punkish, individual and original truth. A truth you do not come across very often any more in the times of post-truth and influencing.
Originality irritates. To call Stef’s work “original” seems nearly understated. Plaster-Bunnies, Happy Cakes, Slot Machines, Credit Rocks, Banana Carpets, PacMen, Fried Eggs, Jesus Jars, Flamboyant Sponges, Oracles from Delphi, Adams&Eves and Great Great Grand Fathers. Some of these artworks are made out of pillows and cigarettes, some of them use plaster and concrete and dead fishes, but a lot – really a lot – are made out of cheese. Babybel Cheese, Emmental Cheese – and let’s not forget the Danish Blue Cheese.
