Exhibition: i will not be just a tourist in the world of images just watching images passing by which i cannot live in make love to possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstacy
Sharing a poetic approach in embodying experiences moving between the physical world and that of the mind, five artists have created works in media ranging from painting and photography to video and installation. Under the title taken from Anais Nin’s diary, works navigate through multiple realms with different modes and densities of time, questioning and investigating borders between what is perceived as internal and external; and how these may fold and ripple into each other. Five artists will participate in the exhibition.
