This room. Place of intimacy and freedom of movement suddenly subjugated to forces of change coming from outside.
It is condemned to disappear and has no choice but to undergo a condition of suspension, a contingent temporality that accelerates towards an announced death.
It is this space, which can not go back to being what it still is, that these art works, collectively, occupy, test it’s limits and constitute themselves as witnesses in a downfall that they simultaneously mirror and discuss.
Can a shout of revolt, directed at the context that unleashed it, expand awareness and promote reflection?
It is a struggle for survival and in this case the strategy is to struggle until the end.
