Balance by Struggle
Graphic Identity, Exhibition Curation/Design, 2017
The exhibition “Balance By Struggle” explores the relationship between two of the most famous personas of De Stijl, Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondriaan, by getting to the core of their disagreement: formality vs informality.
It suggested a new outlook on the conflicts and mentality of De Stijl, retrospecting them through various artists of today and 20th century and bringing public’s experience of De Stijl from purely visual to a new - more conscious level. They were able to search for answers about the mentality of De Stijl through documented materials, audio and video installa- tions, experience the virtual reality of being a canvas standing in front of Jackson Pollock and get a personal artwork from Jeff Koons.
