Firma Van Drie, Gouda
With: Astera Mortezai
The exhibition Modelburgers presents an ensemble of new works by Astera Mortezai and Nicolas Manenti, in a dialogue that highlights the specificities of each artist in approaching their common concerns.
The exhibition explores the relations between body and society. With an ironic but poetic tone, Mortezai and Manenti propose a set of situations that questions the level of acceptance of the arbitrary in a seemingly free society. They try to understand how such an abstract concept as the “model citizen” can constraint individual behaviours and social relationships, through gestures, the social etiquettes.
