‘’According to several prophecies, religious beliefs and scientific studies, the world as we know it will end on December 21st 2012.’’
2012. Have we now entered the “final year” before the long-awaited Apocalypse? For many of us, this word means the complete destruction of Earth. But by looking at the etymology, the Apocalypse comes from the Greek word apokálypsis, which means “revelation” or “lifting of the veil”. It is the disclosure of something secret that has been hidden from us and that will finally be revealed.
The idea behind Project 2012 is to use this theme to reflect on the way our society is leading towards. Wars, famines, global economic crisis and natural disasters are on the news on a daily basis threatening to bring our societies to a total collapse. Because let’s face it, the Apocalypse has already arrived in many parts of the world. We belong to the very privileged that can still use art as a way of reflection.
The countdown has begun and Part III is now on its way. We are now looking for A NEW GROUP OF ARTISTS!!.
Twenty-two Artists from England, Spain, France, Iran, Poland, China, Japan and Israel shared their interpretation and contributed to Project 2012’s Part I and II in Hackney and Battersea, respectively. From Pop art depicting reality as we know it, to abstract forms exploring the idea of monism.
