Just Hungry / Roeki Symons
November 01 - 28, 2014
Pg Art Gallery is proud to presents the solo show titled ‘Just Hungry’ of the Dutch artist Roeki Symons that runs from November 1st through November 28.
In the exhibition Roeki Symons shows different aspects of the challenge to live in a big city where everybody is ‘just hungry’. Hungry for money, sex, security, information, identity, poetry, love and freedom. The challenge is to face the many dilemmas of urban life with courage and creativity.
Symons presents her observations in an amalgam of painting, printing, photography and embroidery. A series of cartoonish images deals with the undercurrent of fear that pervades the city. Various subjects appear in other works, like the dissection of a bodybuilder in consumable parts and the headache of living in an anonymous high-rise. Roeki Symons confronts the viewer with somewhat painful aspects of everyday life, but with humor and compassion and an inspiring optimism.
