EXHIBITION TEXT:

The extraordinary circumstances that we all face every day due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced many creatives to cancel shows and exhibitions, postpone projects and, in many cases, stop all ongoing artistic activities without any certain plans for the future. This situation is new to everyone, and it requires considering the new context we live in and exploring this new reality in search for creative solutions. Now more than ever we need to connect with others. That’s why we curated a show that allows you to view how other people explore the subject of connections, from the comfort of your own sofa!

 

Why video? We have asked the artists to explore the medium of video to challenge the notion of online exhibiting. Watching videos online has a unique performative quality that could be compared with engaging with artworks in a gallery. 

 

The exhibition has an experimental approach in which the artists accepted the challenge of creating a record of their engagement with text that falls outside their creative comfort zone.
