Groove, swiftness, synthesis, freshness, are few of the many keywords we could use to translate into words this show. Here, the concept of “slang” is conceived as element of contrast to rigid verbal-conceptual and visual structures in favour of a more discoursive-synthetic and effervescent way of making art, that allows and guide us to zigzag into a fluent fruition of the works.

The sparkling, intuitive quality of !Champagne! liberates the viewer from superstructured philosophies and generates a direct/empathetic relationship between the artwork, the public and the surroundings.

Just to be clear: let’s synthesize this in Hegel’s way: There is nothing deeper than what appears on the surface. But is the surface really the surface?
