 Imagined Realities: Does Utopia exist in an unfriendly world?


As new borders are created on a seemingly daily basis, in the post-Brexit post-Trump era, artist Skyler Chen tackles the concept of utopia and whether the term has any validity in modern society.

Imagined Realities showcases a nostalgic counterpart to today’s increasingly digital world with original depictions of ‘Peach Blossom Valley’: a 5th Century poem that describes human curiosity, mystery and exoticism.

Skyler’s subjects retreat into surrealist exotic dreams of circus performances and acrobatic feats, all while looking earnestly bored. They are dark and alluring, putting forth the Confucian ideal of harmony.

Join Skyler this Friday evening, from 6pm till 9pm, for the opening night of his exhibition in De Pijp and make your own utopia surrounded by hauntingly beautiful paintings.

1st May - 15th May
Quelinstraat 80,

Van 1 - 15 mei staat de Nederlands-Taiwanese kunstenaar Skyler Chen met zijn aller eerste Amsterdamse solo tentoonstelling Imagined Realities in de Quellijnstraat 80. 

Imagined Realities vertelt over een eeuwenoud Chinees sprookje over een zoektocht naar een exotische, ideale wereld: de perzoekbloesem vallei.
Magische, duistere en nogal verveeld kijkende types bevinden zich op feesten, in het circus of in vervormde ruimtes. Skylers werk is een nieuwsgierige zoektocht naar harmonie en de waarde van utopie in een steeds begrensdere wereld.
Hoe vinden wij onze perzikbloesem vallei in een wereld van Brexit en Trump. 

Iedereen is welkom op de openingsavond op vrijdag avond 5 mei tussen 18.00 en 21.00.

Can I just say what a aid to seek out someone who really knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know how to convey an issue to mild and make it important. More people must learn this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant imagine youre not more fashionable since you definitely have the gift. play casino
