IN KHARMS WAY with the ZUZUSHII ART LABORATORY
ZUZUSHII ART LABORATORY, the long time creative workshop of Fumico Azuma and Tim Can. Found objects and a conscience feed two and three dimensional constructions, illustrations from the box of humanity. Utilitarian, provoking and open to interpretation. Poignant and darkly comical. Various works will be available to view in the main bar and back room gallery space.
Angry, frustrated, analytical and satirical, but always in awe of the absurd manifestation we call human society, the works of Daniil Kharms (1905-1942, Russia) bring to the front of our collective consciousness a final, desperate image of the human condition: a well-oiled machine driving insatiably towards the edge of oblivion. Daniil Kharm’s reality is filled with the intricate observations of men and women struggling to grasp the logic of their predicaments. Failed by the tools of reason and the grace of government they find salvation in the absurd. With it’s incisive irony and bitter-sweet satire the absurd has the power to make sense of the last vestiges of humanity, where everything else has failed.
