Utopia, dystopia… atopia! In their final exhibition, our nine current graduates don’t tackle the extreme but the indescribable in between, the ungraspable, that which can’t be located. Their works are dealing with the overlapping of time intrinsic to certain places, with photography and film as means to capture immediacy, circumstances, and the ephemeral. We are being sensitized for the ordinary of everyday life in the city, prompted to question the authenticity of contemporary rituals and to imagine for a moment the desire to invigorate a pale, post-apocalyptic universe with new colors. Generally, the idea of mise-en-scene, our imagination and the uncanny are the common threads running through the show. How much discomfort can images still create today? Are there intergalactic intersections between plastic and fashion? And what happens in our minds if amorphous structures transform into projection screens and their substance dissolves?
