Like Tears in Rain
The exhibition invites twelve national and international artists who each will present works specifically produced for this project, throughout the space. Absence is the leitmotiv behind the research for the project. The concept of presence within absence has been a particular focus, especially in spaces where life is sensed through material objects or traces left by human life.
People grasp for eternity through memory, since it is the most valid way of being remembered, but the greatest anguish in life is exactly the one referred in the title of this exhibition – all the moments one has, will disappear, Like Tears in Rain.1
It is impossible to separate notions of death, absence and memory. The invited artists have been asked to look at and produce works beginning with this idea.
