PRESS RELEASE, JOZSA GALLERY
It is a rejection of reality, a journey into abandonment of rationale, logic and history
Epilogue is the Norwegian/Swedish artist duo LELLO//ARNELL’s first exhibition in Belgium.
The artistic practice of Jørgen Craig Lello & Tobias Arnell is heavily characterized by a continuous relationship between fiction and forgery. Basing their work on historical anecdotes, people, movements and objects, these foundations are regularly twisted, dissolved, mangled and deconstructed in order to figure into a separate or analogue narrative.
Such is also the case with Epilogue. The exhibition functions under a guise of third party involvement, as the works are presented as the results of events taking place in a parallel reality, set and directed by the artists. In this reality, historical, mythical and individual fact and fiction areinterchanged, diluted, enhanced and restructured, creating a skewed - even twisted - reckoning of reality.
A conceived protagonist and/or cast of protagonists are subjected to environments which aggravate and challenge their sanity. The resulting works are artifacts from this ordeal - samples which set a frame of mind, or mood, through which to interpret.
