A look into the world penetrates the prism of time... and finds its window - different in form and content...
However, as windows change, they turn to the margins, as do the views that become undervalued and forgotten. Sometimes with the loss of windows comes the moment of identity loss - which is important but often unaware…
The XX - XXI centuries are a period of lost and newly acquired worldview, a "dance" of change. Unsurprisingly, old wooden frames limit our progress and, it appears, a chance for modernity…
However, if identity is important, then memory is equally as important - stored by tradition, in tradition… 6 artists shared 12 windows - useless frames collected on the scrapyard. Windows that were thrown away became images. As ever, the wooden frames again began to hold back the heat: whether it is home, human, spiritual... actualisation.
We are probably among the last to use the theme of windows in the exhibition concept. However, it is inspiring metaphorically. They can recover much that is lost and forgotten. By design, the windows were to become glass images, on which subjects of home icons of the nineteenth century are depicted.
