The subject matter revolves around death and dying. However, selected works do not pertain explicitly to those matters; they focus rather on the motif of inertial movement – rhythm being a peculiar metaphor of life – but consequently also on the interconnections highlighting the tension between ethics and aesthetics, between content and formal aspects. The exhibition is interested in death in its material aspect – understood as necessary part of human condition – deprived of pathos and sentimentalism, big word and classical toposes, which the current discourse of modernity conceals and systematically excludes from the main narrative.
