"Per aspera…" is the first chapter of a double exhibition celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Jozsa Gallery.
In his novel Le Mont Analogue, René Daumal insists that the explorers give up everything in order to reach the gate to the invisible. Aren't we all explorers in search of something else, other than the banality of everyday life? Ergo, it is by following arduous paths and by continuous roaming that one can experience the impact of art.
The pieces that have been selected for this show encourage the viewer to consider the various paths that lead to their appreciation of the work at hand. They present physical, mental and symbolic shifts and round trips. The non-linear progress of the exhibition also aims to reflect Catherine Jozsa's personal and professional approach to the art business. For the past 10 years, amidst an environment that is in perpetual change, she selects and highlights artists and artworks that tackle contemporary issues, issues that are starting point for discussions and that sometimes overthrow our beliefs.
"Per aspera…" can be viewed as mirroring the path followed by the Jozsa Gallery. However, there is no need to ask for directions… otherwise you won't get lost.
