Exhibition Total Value:
We, from the early childhood, are surrounded by social boundaries and regulations that reflect specificity of the social culture of society where we live. The framework (time, space, and culture) in which we live or better say are placed, thanks to our own artificially invented postulates often contradicts to our nature, which originally laid down into us. This creates the problem: queer vs established frameworks. Nothing stays still and hopefully we can see the positive changes. In fact, we just return to our roots ... if we recall the Ancient Greece, Egypt, Maya, etc.
Both origins coexist in everyone. Apparently, in the vast majority of cases, one of them dominates. And both are in continuous dynamics, with a temporary dominance of one over the other in all other cases. From time to time they may completely substitute each other, and it happens at the level of our subconscious. We can remain in the same body shell, but our conscious and subconscious minds, which ultimately govern us, determine our being in the material world, determine our attitude to the norms adopted in each society. Everything is flexible and continuously changing. Both origins are in constant struggle, internal within an individual and external between an individual and surrounding social culture. Unfortunately, not everywhere established norms allow a person to find their inner self. Because the well-known dogmas, cultivated for centuries, still with very few exceptions, continue to suppress the inner self.
The works presented at this exhibition are essential associations extracted from the subconscious and from the memory of the sensations, feelings, and experiences of an individual who always unlike others felt somewhat strange, in whom others saw just what they wanted to see, but not the reality, and who constantly experiences the internal interaction of the two origins.
