Propriety often prevents us from looking “behind the curtains” or into another’s private life although the way in which we impart and read information has radically changed. There’s no problem in satisfying our deadened desire for pleasure because our affectations and the need for attention have become a public confession – but there’s no guarantee of a pardon.
Hidden behind dark curtains and the many doors of the cabinet , the exhibition slumbers in the archives of contemporary folklore and the person’s search for identity – the poetry of the former parliament speaker turned prisoner, a sad sweet meeting of some sect on a Sunday afternoon and the colourful fantasies in personal ads.
The purposefully selected stories form structures where theory meets practice. The eternal search for ideals, striving for consciousness of a higher power and the desire to be loved are confronted by despair, one-night stands and leaders of superstition.
The exhibition forms an overall scene that ranges from the sacred to an animal notion of a person, who, dazzled by a bright light, tries to regain the ability to see.
