semi:mentalKLINIK is a sub-title of :mentalKLINIK which introduces to the audience national and international projects other than its own and which likes host, share and realize mutual projects. semi:mentalKLINIK, like the other titles of :mentalKLINIK, chooses subjects and guests which share its perspective and its expansive standpoint. At different times of the year :mentalKLINIKwelcomes these subjects and guests for a certain period of time; and when it meets a guest or a subject it is deeply fond of, it makes sure to underline its affection by hosting them over and over again.
semi:mentalKLINIK is neither a shop nor a gallery but rather a space that brings the two together under a common denominator. Thus, both the transient and the enduring meet with :mentalKLINIK’s concepts of time and space.
:mentalKLINIK presented two shows of Joel Andrianomearisoa titled THE EPHEMERAL BOUTIQUE and BLACK OUT under semi:mentalKLINIK in its own space.
