PERFEKT WORLD „Jesus Christ Super Sale“ @ PERFEKT BOX, MQ


„The present age prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original, fancy to reality, the appearance to the essence… for in these days illusion only is sacred, truth profane.“ – Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach

In time for the final stretch of the Christmas shopping madness PERFEKT WORLD put on their first group exhibition in their new contemporary space PERFEKT BOX at the MQ in Vienna.

An exhibition, a Christmas market, a holy spirited special offer – „Jesus Christ Super Sale“ is an examination of the cultural and commercial phenomenon of Christmas and how it has gone from religious tradition to a celebration of commerce. 10 artists visualize their positions in the form of buyable objects

Artists: Boicut + Zwupp! //  Die Luntisten // Wald & Schwert // Lumpenpack + Mafia // Paul Busk // PERFEKT WORLD // Tobias Held + Michael Tripold (Atzgerei) // Soybot // Nize // Josef Wurm

her ARTic impression:
As usual the art collective PERFEKT WORLD suprises with it’s special kind of criticism and humor by provoking their audience with a mixture of sarcasm and trashy pop-cultural banality. It seems as if they are laughing at this whole Christmas shopping madness by turning the exhibition into a christmas art market itself and at the same time managing to show the biggest spacial and artistic potential with a variety of local artists in this little box.
The exhibition runs till 23.12.2012. Make sure to check it out!
