Circle Culture Gallery Hamburg presents the solo exhibition “Nothing is what it seems“ by American artist Olivia Steele from June 25th to 28th, 2014.

A selection of photographs as well as her most recent neon works will be shown – a range from small to large installations that employ the traditional commercial medium of neon glass to make intimate statements, representing a profound involvement with the unpredictability of life.

The juxtaposition of the neon statement and the environment is placed in challenging conventional semiotics and evokes a wide range of interpretations. In dialogue with media such as facades, rivers, photographs and found objects, she tells short stories that provoke thought while enlightening the scenery with elaborate handwritings in neon glass.
