"Ideas of landscape, exploration and transcendentalism seen through the filter of the literary, academic, hobbyist and domestic." – Kasper Pincis
Every year the outcome of the Zeitgeist Open produces an intriguing curatorial theme, one that could not be predicted or planned. Selected artist Kasper Pincis captures flawlessly, in the quote above, the dystopian essence and Kafkaesque wonderland that emerges in the 2015 Exhibition. Everyday objects such as books and supermarket logos collide with the obscure and the anthropological, the miniature, the absurd and the comic. Nothing is quite what it seems with cardboard castles, carnivalesque sculptures and things that explode, implode and blush in the corner. What emerges palpably, is that these artists are in full possession of their intentions and that the investigations and depictions that emerge – worlds with strange new meanings – never lose sight of the artist's own obsessions.
: The Zeitgeist Open Exhibition is a vibrant and critical showcase for new and established artists. It has become renowned for having a significant impact on artists' careers by raising their art world profiles through press, sales and exhibition opportunities as well as creating new networks with collectors, curators and other artists. The Zeitgeist Open is one of the pioneers of making the selection process of the competition anonymous. Previous selected artists include Tom Butler, Ben Coode-Adams, Ben Cove, Annabel Dover, Jonny Green, Debbie Lawson and Ben Woodeson.
The Zeitgeist Open Exhibition 2015 was facilitated and is partnered by the excellent Point + Line
, an online community for artists and art enthusiasts.
