The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Group exhibition of works by

Katherine Bernhardt, Rui Chafes, Gil Heitor Cortesao, Erwin Olaf, Sara Rahbar, Farzan Sadjadi, and Michael Sailstorfer


CARBON 12 Gallery, Dubai

November 22nd 2010-January 10th, 2011


Carbon 12 proudly presents The Unbearable Lightness of Being, exhibiting the works of Katherine Bernhardt, Sara Rahbar, Rui Chafes, Erwin Olaf, Farzan Sadjadi, Michael Sailstorfer, and Gil Heitor Cortesao. With their highly idiosyncratic style, each artist epitomizes the “Es muss sein!” (It must be so!) of Milan Kundera's Book, which inspired the exhibition's title.

The exhibition's statement is literary: the works are like books, and the artists like authors.

The artist's medium gives form to the concepts of structure and space, density and texture as a leaf of paper conveys thoughts, ideals, absolute truths and emotional distortions with every written word.

The relationship between the work and its creator is intertwined with originality and individuality. The oeuvre reveals the character of the artist, and vice-versa: the two form an inseparable entity, literally a body of work. The works offer paradigmatic solipsism and absolute ideals, and only what we call a true work of art manages to bring form and content together, in an intersection that allows the viewer to take part in artistic epiphany. The burdens of the daily grind, the joys of metaphysical horizons: light and darkness, to be or not be, inevitably omnipresent and unbearably beautiful.
