Pinar&Viola

Creative studio founded by Pinar Demirdag and Viola Renate in 2009 in Amsterdam.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Paris, November 2015

 

As Pınar&Viola, we have a fantasy.

We imagine a future where, the more we will be driven by technology, the more we strive for consciousness and for the recognition of the sacredness of nature.

We imagine a future where we choose wisdom over given information,

community over consumerism, and deep healing over false advertising.

We activate this fantasy through the tool we master.

The tool that is so everywhere yet ungraspable,

The tool that everyone has access to yet it seems no one has the patience to elaborate: THE IMAGE

The tool that has, and currently is, being used to mislead masses.

 

This “état d’esprit”, which is an idealistic demeanour in itself, is visible in all our artworks and commissions.
