It’s a family affair
When I got together with Antonio, Antonis and Zippora a few weeks ago to talk about the exhibition, Antonio said that this project felt like a family project, where professional artist practice was intertwined with personal life. In that regard, we find ourselves in a special and temporary period in which the people, who run the estate, are family and thus have a personal connection to the artist. As a result, the private person that Constant was and the artist, Constant inevitably get mixed up sometimes, also in the projects.
This also makes it feel like, with Constant 101, we are expanding the family with co-workers, organizations and artists from different disciplines and with different backgrounds. They all create a connection with Constant, with his work, ideas or ideas. By collaborating on projects, Constant becomes part of their history. While their involvement ensures a new, contemporary perspective on his work and ideas.
In the exhibition “The Future can be Humane” three artists from completely different backgrounds come together. The work and practice of both Antonio and Antonis touches on that of Constant in the way it is infused with knowledge of the history and very layered. At the same time, they manage to shape this into visually engaging and interesting work.
