Barefoot - Jie Adamat

Sept 23 - Oct 7, 2017

Jie Adamat makes paintings, wall murals and set designs. Her works are based on inspiring situations like moments that become a part of a narrative thread or visions that are a drawn reflection upon life itself. She continues to explore painting as a personal index and articulates the stream of daily events to illuminate the human drama based on the everyday aesthetic of middle-class values. She makes works of thematically interrelated situations in order to clarify our existence, as well as routine depictions in the realm of experience.


Adamat tries to create images in which the actual event still has to take place or just has ended to become a memory of an event while the drama unfolds elsewhere. While her works absorbs the tradition of remembrance through art into daily practice, it also characterizes the mentality in which recognition plays an important role. Demonstrating how life extends beyond its own subjective limit and presented with the aim of not to provide an idealistic view but to identify where the light of tomorrow remains as a blessing in disguise.
