To celebrate the inauguration of 2B Art Gallery, which will take place on 5 May in Palma de Mallorca, the artist SABEK will present “Duality”. An exhibition that brings together 16 unpublished works that promise to be a before and after in the artist’s career. In addition, he will also be launching his first limited edition of “Heat” silkscreen prints, which he has produced in collaboration with 2B Art Gallery. 

Sabek continues with “Duality” to investigate human behaviour through totemic animal energy, encoding the parallelism between society and our natural environment, but actively taking sides, alerting us to the importance of control and awareness in order to buffer the cause and effect of our actions.

A visual journey of scenes in which the “symbolic confrontation” reveals an alarming concern for nature, which, threatened by our actions, implores a global awareness, a conductive story that aims to show us the need to generate a new paradigm of thought and, therefore, of action.

DUALITY

The light of a flash of lightning appears on the horizon… seconds later, a bolt of lightning splits the earth in two, the magnificence of this act offers us a new landscape, one part devastated in fire and the other serene, calm. Both are the same earth, both belong to the same place, but nevertheless, an act of nature has turned them into opposites, opposites made of the same matter.

There is no light without darkness, no beauty without destruction, no life without death, it is the coexistence of both energies where the valuable spark, the balance, resides. “Duality” glimpses the chiaroscuro of the human essence through a series of creations where the animal kingdom, as the protagonist, shows us the internal tensions of our own essence with respect to our social and natural environment.
