The exhibition “Inner Connections” is organized by “Many Colors” Cultural Association in partnership with Ceram Art Foundation. It is part of a complex visual art curatorial project, “Facets of Hyperconnectivity” (2015-2016), which includes a series of related cultural events: conferences, visual art exhibitions, performances, workshops, experimental and contemporary music auditions.
“Inner Connections” is a ceramics exhibition built around the concept of communication; the themes approached focus on the genuine verbal communication, taking place in the off-line space, on colloquialism, empathy, intuition, the inner world and the communication built on non-virtual foundations.
The modern man lives in a world in which computers and mobile phones, together with all the gadgets associated with them, have become vital and the fact of being online is a purpose in itself.
By questioning the dyads virtual identity vs. real identity, virtual language vs. real language, virtual space vs. physical space, we can obtain a different type of perception of the mechanisms that converge in communication. In other words, the way has become the goal, with all the inherent cultural consequences arising from this. The key element is the interrogative dimension, above the aesthetic and conceptual ones.
The exhibition can be seen from January 6 to February 4, 2016.
“Facets of Hyperconnectivity” is a project financed by EEA Grants 2009-2014, Program PA17/RO13 – Promotion of diversity in culture and arts within European cultural heritage (www.fonduri-diversitate.ro). The grant has been offered by Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and the Government of Romania.
