OPENING SHOW: FRIDAY MAY 3RD FROM 17.00

Lumen Travo gallery is delighted to invite you to the opening of the group show “Flowers, Candles, Crucifixes” that features the works of Ani Eloyan, Dianne Hagen and artist duo HENR.

Ani Eloyan’s works on paper are collages that stitch together elements from the world of cartoons, whose language confronts and questions the issues of sexuality, class, aesthetics and social acceptability.
Her artistic practice extends the notion of how humour can tell us something about our understanding of that nature but as well the limit of our understanding.

By sharing the same dark and provocative touch of artist Eloyan, Dianne Hagen‘s artistic practice evolves mainly around the notion of visceral instincts. Hagen tries to establish a direct association between the object shown and the mental image it conveys. For this occasion she will exhibit both drawings and sculptures.

This sharp and definitely humorous analysis of the “human” is present not only in Hagen’s practice but also in the works of the artist duo HENR, who investigates through video installations and photography the creation of a Dreamland and how the desire for an own defined world can take shape.
