Have a seat, lean back and "Buckle your seatbelts!", because the plane is cleared for take-off. The Hamburg-based artist MIR loads in OZM HAMMERBROOKLYN with his exhibition Fasten your seat belt to a special journey. Nothing here is what it seems at first glance. This also applies to the title of the exhibition chosen by the artist: because this is not just the English-language aircraft announcement to please buckle up, but also a symbolic message from MIR on the current situation and the measures taken. Through the "psychological buckle up" society is forced to live with restrictions. Sometimes you need a life jacket to keep yourself going, which is also a kind of art. The works of MIR all originated before the spread of the corona virus in Europe and therefore seem like a prophecy for the imminent future.
"Bon Voyage" wishes us MIR with his new exhibition in the OZM Art Space Gallery. He takes us on a journey into the unconscious, tries to break through the masquerade in order to activate his painted messages in us. The values, specially designed for the exhibition, leave any doubt about a complex and sometimes very disturbing environment and open the horizon again.
