max goelitz invites artists Nicolás Lamas with gallery Meessen De Clercq, Brussels and Jeremy Shaw to the group exhibition failed transcendence together with Haroon Mirza, Helga Dóróthea Fannon and Niko Abramidis &NE. The central theme of the exhibition is the concept of failed transcendence by author Tom McCarthy. The group show focuses on the notion of failure and the questioning of traditional ideas of authenticity while exploring the limits and shortcomings of achieving higher states of consciousness across different time axes.
The exploration of altered states in Shaw's works, Lamas' investigation of naturalness and artificiality, Mirza's and Fannon's merging of technology and spirituality, and Abramidis &NE's blurring of the physical and virtual, create a rich and multidimensional dialogue revealing different layers of truth and reality.
