Description / Buyer

In occasion of the exhibition “Shop_les jeux d’amour”- edited by Alessia Locatelli – who will inaugurate it on May 7th 2013 at the Ostrakon Space in Milan, Creathead and the editors launch this creative contest about the theme of Eros.
We started this 2013 with some events that - from the design to the painting – have put the attention on the necessity to improve this theme. As artists and editors of contemporary art, thanks to this exhi-event, we want to give a contribution to this new vision of Eros through the arts. What “Shop_les jeux d’amour” wants to probe isn’t a sociological analysis; our “modest proposal” is to face up to the theme as a contemporary visive story dealing with relationships and discussion about Eros’s mechanisms that govern our lives, not only in the inner sphere. A story that seems sometimes ironic, others extreme, soft or sharp, coloroful or noisy or white and highlight through the works of artists already known nationally and internationally. The title of the exhibition Shop_les jeux d’amour indicates on one hand the current situation of the world of Eros, debased almost to the use and consumption, on the other hand, it emphasizes the informal approach, non-conceptual, that alien it from any kind of extreme theorization.


Today Love offers itself through standards completely new. After the sexual freedom of ‘70s has become evident as in western world was unthinkable to stem every kind of personal “revolution” about customs and traditions linked to Eroticism and Love, in all their possible and unimaginable variations. Then, Internet and the pay TV’s channels give spectators the desire of exhibition reaching extreme levels, also in the private sphere. To all the members of Creathead community we ask to interpret this new vision of the Eros’ world thanks to their arts and creativity: you have to upload an image, an illustration, a photography or a project that fully reflect your interpretation of this theme.
