"A beautiful exhibition!" Last chance: the life of things - objects and their portraits.

The exhibition:

Everyday objects and their portraits are juxtaposed, banal objects become a subject, a still life becomes a mirror of reality.

Next to the works of ten contemporary European artists, the objects portrayed by them were placed and it is left to the guests, to imitate the artistic gaze: How would I have seen this? Which angle, which arrangement, which thing would I have chosen?

Because that's what a creator does with every work: nowhere is that more comprehensible than with still lifes in the broader sense.

Indeed, the gallery shows not only vessels and fruits but also clothes of models, prepared birds, medicines and charcoal.

How do I see the "thing", would I have chosen it and how would I have placed it?

Are the shapes, perspectives and colors right and what does "right" mean - what is "right"? How much part has the selection, the arrangement, the choice of colors?

Does the artist's eye really see different colors than untrained eyes, or does it merely decide which color nuances blend more harmoniously?
