Knowledge Of / Знание о

Mixed–media: video, canvas, old book, book display copy. 
With Lucas Gutierrez. Aperto Raum, Berlin, 2017


An exhibition & dialogue exploring the term “knowledge” and the manner in which self-studies are structured within contemporary artistic approach.

The structure of the show is based on the use of three mediums for each artist: an evolving time-based medium (a video); a flat and static medium (a towel and a canvas); and a 3D–object (a sculpture and a book) as a method to combine all existing information on the given subject at once.

The visual form of the show is presented in abstract and schematic graphics. Lucas Gutierrez’s work is rooted in the process of experiment, which leads to finding unique aesthetic structures inside the synthetic and digital. Protey Temen’s approach in response to Lucas’ starts with a literal scratch on paper and expands to endless variations of the schematic formulas, dissolving a text–based knowledge into symbolical representation.
