OPENING RECEPTION: NOVEMBER 10TH | 6 TO 10 PM 
 
SHUFFLE brings together brand-new works on paper, canvas and ceramics, teasing SADDO's upcoming sequel show, with works presented as part of the FANBOY exhibition. 
 
In a very POP register, Saddo not only creates pieces on this subject, but a whole ambient. It's something he truly likes, it's a very simple instinct at first glance, to create pieces based on subjects that simply attract you: the contradictory mix of rawness, gangsta culture, but also poetry, status assertion, social issues that lots of communities are still dealing with, criminality and opulence. 
 
The art pieces in the series have the feeling of totems or cult objects, not in a magical sense, but in a very real and heartfelt fascination for the subject. Translated in Saddo's stylistic trademark, you can clearly see the weight of this aesthetic, of the urban glam that stays hardcore because it's hard to fake.
 
Saddo's pieces abound in details, meaningful details with connotations essential for deciphering a cultural context and, zoom-in, the connoisseurs can find references to songs or defining elements for the musicians depicted; the frames surrounding the characters remind us of comic books: flowers, jewellery, cars, brand logos, snakes. They create a story and a complex setting reminding of Oriental miniatures or Orthodox icons (if only they were this much fun). - Lea Rasovszky 
 
The exhibition is organised together with BL STUDIO ASSOCIATES.
