THE TRUTH HURTS
[ BUT THEN IT WILL SET YOU FREE ]
CircleCulture Gallery, Berlin
July 19th – September 1st, 2013
"In order to be able to understand the process of love, inevitable loss and the reality that comes with it, one must embrace the concept of truth first. The truth is as hard to tell, as it is to hear." Staying true to her cause, this exhibition is a culmination of Olivia Steele's emotional contrasts. In dialogue with herself, these contrasts encompass recent trials and tribulations that put a chillingly firm grip on reality. Fantasy & Reality. Life & Death. Falling in Love and Letting go. Meeting with Triumph and Disaster – all themes which sum up the undertone of this collection. For Olivia Steele the sentiment "Mind over Matter" has the power to rationalize any challenging situation. By celebrating this fact and the process that comes with it, one learns to deal with the truth that we will all lose the things we hold most dear: The Truth Hurts, But Then It Will Set You Free.
