CERTAIN EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS IN EXCEPTIONABLE CIRCUMSTANCES BROKE FREE OF THE NORMS OF THE TRADITION AND PRODUCED WORK THAT WAS DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED TO ITS VALUES; YET THESE ARTISTS ARE PROCLAIMED AS THE TRADITION’S SUPREME REPRESENTATIVES. JOHN BERGER
UNIVERSE OF RELATIONS
JUNE 08 - SEPTEMBER 23
The exhibition “Universe of relations” brings into focus how an architectural environment can operate as a full participant in the space of social interactions, while also acting as a bearer of historical memory. The works of artists presented within this exhibition may use a variety of methods to represent architectural objects, but their message is one and the same: architectural objects and the practice of design are not just the result of the creative toil of one individual, striving to meet his or her own needs alone. Instead, the artists explore architecture as, on the one hand, a reality that affects a person, structuring his or her everyday life, thereby revealing itself as a full-fledged subject in and of itself, and on the other, a massive archive, enormously impacting how we construct an image of the past.
