Concept

The interpretations encounter political statements or disperse cultural observations; correspondence that is not immediate but perhaps depends on the contingencies of travel. Subversive systems of posting and collecting dialogue create the emergence of new narratives that are shared and reacted upon through hybrid texts, images and temporary ownership. Show cased as a touring exhibition at Broadwalk Arts, Bristol then at The Willesden Gallery, London, the works continue to explore language, visual interchange and systematic dialogues.

Igor Juran builds his work on pseudo-science basis by using all members of the project to calculate their individual astrological natal charts.

A cliché is a stencil, but also a stereotype, same as an art system itself subjected to critic and theoretical justifications which define one product as an art form, while other might not even consider. Maja's tapestry presents one of those spaces of denying.
