EyeLevel BQE is pleased to announce a group exhibition Dark Days, curated by Clementine Nixon. This exhibition gathers eight Brooklyn based artists, whose work investigates aspects of darkness and sublimity. The selected artists represent a diverse range of approaches and mediums, including painting, sculpture, etching and installation.
The concept behind the show begun with a treatise written by Edumund Burke titled “A Philosophical Enquiry into Our Ideas on the Sublime and Beautiful” (1757). The book is an examination of how sensation, imagination, and judgment are interrelated in the experience of art. Burke explains how these three steps- causal relationships, determine the viewer’s experience of pleasure and pain, and how pleasure and pain are represented by the aesthetic concepts of beauty and sublimity.
A copy of the book was given to each participating artist, each of whom were then asked to create or select works that somehow responded to Burke’s definition of the sublime, that is, “Whatever is fitted in any sort to excite the ideas of pain and danger, that is to say, whatever is in any sort terrible, or is conversant about terrible objects, or operates in a manner analogous to terror, is a source of the sublime”.
