The Adventure of the Human Being

Exhibition
The Adventure of the Human Being

Curator: Hasan Bülent Kahraman

Artist: Magdalena Abakanowicz

Abakanowicz is providing an account of the odyssey of man who came to earth with his own adventure.

The adventure of the human being was to change the world. This he did mostly despite himself. He was eager to get accustomed to a universe he was alien to, get used to its time, its space or rather adapt them to himself. In time, man was transformed through art, he transformed space through art. He withstood his loneliness and alienness with art. He prevailed by creating. He is still pursued by the traces he left on the walls of the cave.

Art is an alias for creating. Just as the human being is the highest form of nature. Art is the bridge between the God of man and the man of God.

Abakanowicz is producing the art of the 30 thousand year old adventure of man, and the man of the 30 thousand year old adventure of art. This is an exhibition from across the ages, an adventure passing through the ages!

If man is the ashes of his art, then this exhibition is the fire that burns that ash.
