"FIND YOURSELF IN CHAOS"
21 February – 15 March 2014
The Underdogs Gallery is proud to present “Find Yourself in Chaos” – a solo show by AkaCorleone.
Based on what the artist describes as “the chaos in which I constantly find myself and see around me”, the exhibition sets as objective the exploration of that vertigo of excess and saturation which characterises life in contemporary urban societies, setting out from his personal visual universe to create reflections and manipulation games where the author himself determines what information he wants to reveal or omit.
According to the artist's statement: “The feeling of excess of information in the brain which makes it impossible to focus on one task alone, the idea that we're never satisfied making us therefore accumulate, the visual pollution to which we submit ourselves without questioning, are notions I address in the works created for the exhibition.”
The exhibition will also be accompanied by the release of an exclusive, limited-edition work and an intervention at Village Underground in Lisbon with the support of one of its partners Amorim/Gyptec – details to be announced soon.
Pedro Campiche / AkaCorleone (1985) is a Portuguese illustrator/graphic designer/visual artist who started out as a notorious graffiti writer in the Lisbon underworld. A self-confessed obsessive with all things graphic and visual, he is known for his dexterity in using colours, typography, characters and forms, which he blends to achieve eye-catching compositions imbued with originality and an all-pervasive humour. He has been exhibiting his work since 2010.
