15 November – 13 December 2014

The Mini Galerie proudly presents Contra, a solo exhibition by Graphic Surgery.

Over the years the works by Graphic Surgery have been exploring the boundaries of different techniques and genres within their trademark style. The artist duo freely moves from paintings, to murals, videos and installations while maintaining their systematic aesthetics of diagonal lines, geometric planes and a mostly black and white non-colour scheme.

With an entirely new body of works Contra examines on-going dualities like abstract versus figurative, analogue versus digital and high art versus urban environments. By reinforcing these differences Graphic Surgery is looking for a balance in their works that reduces the paradoxes to rubble.

Graphic Surgery’s very first solo exhibition in their hometown Amsterdam will form a new point of departure for the artists. Contra marks an important shift of evaluating past experiments and contemplating the artistic practice the same way the ‘Contra Composities’ did for the Style artist Theo van Doesburg.

Graphic Surgery is formed by Erris Huigens (1978) and Gysbert Zijlstra (1978).
