Expositions Season 2023
The FIVE SENTENCES project presents 5 visual stories of artists whose work has overcome life's most difficult challenges and pushed them to far corners to finally find themselves. This concept points to the fact that many of us are faced with the decision to leave our native home to start building a new one completely elsewhere. In knowledge and the challenge of integration, we seek not only the reason for our existence, but also the way in which we can be beneficial to each other. FIVE SENTENCES is a summary of these journeys and attempts to sign in the book of existence so that those who read this story after us understand who we wanted to be and who we became.
The exhibition will feature the work of contemporary artists, who present themselves mainly in painting and sculpture. The selection of creations should be dense, structured and animalistic, emphasizing the aspect of handwriting and movement during the performance itself. The medium is chosen so that the choice of material is expressive and the statement through it is as sincere and emotional. The work should represent the inner need to communicate intensively with the viewer, even through the choice of colors, materials, or themes of the works.
In the concept of FIVE SENTENCES, there is also a performance element, when the author of the project places a painting in the entrance to the gallery before the introduction. The culmination of this work will be the incorporation of the visitor into the painting with his own colored line.
With this, the author appeals to the fact that the people around us leave their mark on our lives, and their influence does not mean that we lose our own self, but that we enrich ourselves with this imaginary signature of others, experiences without which we would not be ourselves. The visitors' intervention in the author's work will be the last sentence. The image of FIVE SENTENCES will testify to the fact that the created image will not be devalued by others, on the contrary, it will be completed. Co-exhibitors will make the first entries, thereby breaking the fear of others to intervene.
"It's as if our life didn't exist if we didn't share it with others. It's as if our work didn't exist if it didn't enrich others."
