IS THE NEW WORLD EVEN POSSIBLE?
Our exhibition is an invitation to a peculiar journey through subsequent ‚‚ecosystems’’. The first one, beginning with the ancient past and echoing the collapse of highly developed cultures, poeses questions about here and now as well as about what will happen to out species in the future. The second ecosystem reminds a checkpoint in a virtual game - a place of transition, a road to knowledge, a point of meditation controlled by arrivals from another planet. The installation Is the New World Even Possible? Is a reaction to the ubiquitous and compulsory affirmation of advanced technocratic capitalism. It talks about the dream of abandoning all social phenomena and problems of modern world, and the desire to return to an unspecified original state. The last ecosystems, Escape and Madness, comment on the possible ways of abandoning reality, either as open defiance, which carries the risk of stigmatization, or as detachment from the world while being ,,absolved’’ due to a passive social function.
