Inner Vision In Between Mclemoi Gallery, Sydney, Australia 2013
MCLEMOI Gallery and FWY present “Inner Vision in Between”, the exhibition of FriendsWithYou’s first Australia solo show. This exhibition is a reflection of a journey from one chapter to another. Sam and Tury jump into a vortex of the unknown, further highlighting the true mission of creation with the embodiment of the living amulet. Animism plays a large role, as FriendsWithYou continues to explore artifacts of the archetype; minimal, peaceful, stoic, and sometimes foreboding. FriendsWithYou’s works for this exhibition span the spiritual gamut from play to ritual.
Each piece represents a simple dialogue, taking place inside each person who engages it. In its simplified form the works act as a mirror for which the viewers place whatever emotions and feelings, allowing for an honest and pure interaction. The artists created a series of new sculptures for this exhibition- a selection of images are highlighted below.
