Endings | Time machine
Nothing is settled when times are shifting. Neither lines, colors, dimensions or words. Houses are moving, so do streets, names and concrete. Rituals, categories and daily life – transform. And the change comes closer, inevitably. Nostalgia and lost time are a part of the safety net that we like to sew everyday in front of the unknown tomorrow. During the exhibition we want and need to take a look at those changes. Spaces and areas where we’re welcoming new perspectives, exploating what is gone and hoping for better future. Material reality, that should be the core, transforms as well. And this would be the main idea of the exhibition. Nostalgia and material melancholies – technologies that are gone and those overtaking the future. The Sims, Second life, TikTok or NFT. Destroyed pavements of your childhood. Broken windows and first mobile phones. Everything that seemed to be the turning point of the future though now it’s already unnecessary, forgotten or just covered in dust. Our old dreams are today’s trash. Burden that we’re carrying. How would you deal with that?
We do not look for answers, we’re looking for poetic statements from different parts of the world.
