The exhibition project called Seven Touches offers confronting works of young artists whose common denominator is to draw attention to the human senses – their imperfection, frailty, and an attempt to verify their ability to reliably transmit information. The wide range of media (text from conceptual tuned installation audio and video installation) so communication takes place in the underground area, so in comparison to impersonal gallery framework provides a platform cramped and uncertainty stronger tone of the works. On the one hand, questioning calculated to occur logical thinking and handling audience expectations, on the other hand it is a subjectively defined relationship to space, time, or the imitation of the attributes of living biological structure underground.
From the ironic horror found footage, which also expands into the expansive environment, thus drastically mess up the line between film and reality, through the intervention facing an entry chamber and the presence of a person in an unfamiliar environment, to the deceptively guided by assumptions and stereotypes of perception, parasitizing the viewer doubt extends line between the individual works. This nexus is a form of navigation, topographic map of sensory perception, which is the essence of an opinion to learn understanding the relationships, an attempt to define a new orientation and sensory examination of the limits of reality. Seven Touches reviews the viewers’ expectations and pushes them to be a line beyond which to see is not to believe.
