In Fall/Winter 2002, the MoMu Gallery opened with “Ambimorphous” curated by Hussein Chalayan (also Artdirector of the N°C Magazine). With Ambimorphous, Chalayan explores the borderline of power and powerlessness, of real experiences and surreal perception.
Curator: Hussein Chalayan
“The aim of the project is to explore the shady territory between realism and surrealism, power and powerlessness. As an example I intend to examine the connections between Alice in Wonderland as a representation of a surreal entity, and war as a real life force. The surreal implications of macrocosmic and microcosmic scenarios in Alice in Wonderland where the objects around the central figure are larger or smaller have connotations of power and powerlessness in controllable or uncontrollable environments. The experience of modern -day war, anonymously violent, filtered, censored and almost recreated by the media does not remain a real life experience but becomes as surreal as Alice in Wonderland itself. The ultimate object is to demonstrate that man made theories of reality and our power over this reality can reverse, and that surreal situations themselves are a part of life and do not reamin as fragments of the imagination.”
