Hookedblog are currently in Montreal, Canada for the third edition of the MURAL festival which this year sees the festival grow from a 4 day festival into an impressive 11 day event with a large part of the Boulevard St-Laurent closed off to traffic for the duration of the festival. We kick off our coverage of this years festival with a selection of images from LA artists Cyrcle. The collective made up of American artists David Leavitt ( Davey Detail) and David Torres ( Rabi ) opened their latest exhibition NOTHING EXISTS! last week at Montreal's Station16 Gallery. We stopped by the gallery to check out the artists latest body of work for this show.
"Nothing exists is a philosophical quandary, a statement comprised of absolute polarities, in which it’s meaning is inherently dependent on one’s perception. This composition presents us with the opportunity to think critically. Whether abstract or rational this contradiction confronts us with a perplexing challenge, testing both our beliefs and knowledge. Somewhere between something and nothing exists a space of uncertainty. This moment is immeasurable, yet more substantial than that which is tangible.
Nothing exists, it is waiting to be defined. Questioning this requires faith and fact. The more we understand that nothing is something, we realize nothing exists. See blind. Hear silence. Feel the truth. "
The 'Nothing Exists' exhibition continues at Station16 for the duration of the Mural Festival and until the 4th July 2015.
