The exhibition “I Can’t Perform Miracles” by Vincent Olinet will be open at FOST Gallery in Gillman Barracks from June 7th to July 28th, 2013. Olinet’s fascination with creating the experience of le merveilleux (‘the marvelous’) is obvious through his works, which seem to exist in the realm between the real and imaginary.
By choosing subjects for their emotional power and potential to speak universally, he creates playful objects and presents them in ways that amplify their ordinary form. These objects become two-faced representations, both protagonist and antagonist, playing with attractive and repulsive perceptions, saintly and diabolical qualities, thereby creating a confusion of truth and falsity.
