The space of social reality nowadays deeply depends on the neo-liberal paradigm and its subordinated political dictate which together form an environment where the layers of dying inter-personal relationships, cultural fossils and natural cataclysms are deposited. All of this becomes the centre of collective and personal unease, an open wound and pain, torn between soul and body, the superiority of technology over nature and the superiority of the capital over the freedom of a man.
Reading this background we can understand the conceptual level of individual authors and their artistic practices which responsibly adopt a position toward the world; toward the all-encompassing ball in the universe, covered by a thin outer crust, with live inner substance which is fragile like a human being. In their interpretations a set of external events, psychological conditions and social contents is positioned in the centre of visual reflection, with the intention to uncover the thinking horizons of time and space; to draw attention with their works to many nonsense and fatal codes of contemporary civilization imprisoned into a dazzling apparition of human ambitions.
