First, admit you have a problem
In his work, Ivan Moudov’s has continuously addressed and challenged various elements of the art world. The visible or invisible rules and codes of collections, museums, exhibitions and exhibition openings, have equally been submitted to a pitiless play of deconstruction and mise-en-abyme.
“First, admit you have a problem” is part of this on- going interest, but also the first more humanistic work of the artist. Probably because he is himself not only an artist but also a gallerist and a collector, Moudov takes here a more holistic approach and proposes an exhibition that is basically about healing. In a fast producing and consuming art world, what we all have in common is that no matter on which side of the game we are, we all have a problem.
