“We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come” Milan Kundera

Lightness is a group exhibition that includes video and sculpture installations and brings together the work of five artists who are concerned with the struggle to find pattern and meaning in the seemingly random, strange and mysterious world we live in. The selected artists share a study of perception, form and our understanding of the world, sometimes constructing a parallel world of sensory perception.

 

In a loose or from a sideways position, the ideas for the exhibition come to us from Milan Kundera’s novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being, where Milan Kundera explores a light and heaviness that he associates with outlooks and ways of being in the world.
