VIOLENCE/SILENCE at the Cello Factory

16 international artists who reflect on and explore polarities of two magnetic opposites that are violence & silence.


We are delighted to announce the opening of Violence/Silence, at The Cello Factory. Curated by Vanya Balogh – the power behind the underground car park shows – this show promises to be just as dynamic and acute. The exhibition will feature works in diverse media; from painting, sculpture & photography to sound, film & installation, whilst highlighting dark, hidden thermostats of the artists’ lives.

Whether we choose between the two, or embrace both in one; these states present us with audible set of difficult, subliminal questions. Artists examine this space which is nothing else but sublime emptiness, shadow and darkness, carrying the condition of this embodiment. They collectively, intuitively throw rendered light on similarities and differences between the two, leaving the language mute in order to draw us closer to that in between space of violence/silence. If there is one thread present through the practices of all these so different artists it is that of the attention to detail.
