THE WORLD OF KALUK
Exhibitions: Pictoplasma Festival | Berlin La Gaïté Lyrique | Paris Voo Store | Berlin Museo de Arte Contemporáneo | Monterrey
The world of Kaluk is a sculptural and multimedia project initiated in 2011 by the artists Ben&Julia and first presented at the Stink Gallery during the Pictoplasma Festival in Berlin, later at La Gaïté Lyrique in Paris and in 2012 fragment of 2nd Life of Kaluk, at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Monterrey.
The project is divided on seven dimensions / lives of the almighty Five-Eared Dog; each life brings Kaluk and the audience to a new conscious vision of the world.
The artists Ben&Julia open the doors of an imaginary museum where oversized fantastical characters and surreal story lines create a strong interaction with the audience.
The mind quickly creates an entanglement of thoughts using the colorful sculpted matter and audio waves as a tutor to shape the Five-Eared Dog's world.
