:mentalKLINIK IN DUBAI PRESENT
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION
It is a very 21st-century condition. FOMO, or Fear Of Missing Out, is a form of social anxiety rooted in the concern that one might be missing an opportunity for social interaction. This is one of the focuses of Gallery Isabelle Van Den Eynde’s new exhibition Thank You For Your Co-operation, presented by :mentalKLINIK, an artist duo from Istanbul, Turkey.
“We are always in one place but need to be somewhere else,” says Yasmin Baydar. “And it must be the best place.” Baydar and the artist Birol Demir began collaborating in 1998 and their work is usually sculptural or installation-based and purposely thwarts categorisation. “We’re trying to talk around our work rather than define it,” says Baydar. “We like to think it speaks for itself. Also, we like to open the work to the audience so they can read it for themselves.”
