CRISIS // „Everyone has one he deserves”//
…………………………………………………………………………………..

CRISIS is a disruptive concept, a key to the disastrous modernity that consists of both: the external world as well as internal reality. It contains many concepts that don’t necessarily have to be terrifying, occupied by radical solutions as amended explosions and breakthroughs. Crisis originally means a turning point, a crucial or decisive situation and it can lead in calling for fundamental changes in patterns of life.
„Everyone has the crisis he deserves” is an open project, with a wide range of tools ready to be used to conduct the deconstruction of misused concepts. This is a contribution to rebuilding the reality of crisis and broadening its definition on an international level. It is the proposal to intervene in „a state of disorganization in which people experience frustration”1. Revolutionary rush-free intervention, based on an agreement in the chaos of united world.

18 artists, coming from 6 different countries and 3 continents were invited to participate in our project. Their works relate to the broad idea of crisis- a concept that brings about extreme emotions in our well-tamed minds. A crisis seen through the eyes of a generation, known as “Y” or the “Next” one. The generation defined by various cultures and standards. The generation, that uses a universal language of art to talk about things that are important, floating in between what is private and what is public.

In the works that are being presented we can repeatedly see emptiness and futility as an attempt to communicate with the uneasy state of continuous imprisonment. The emotions take form of visual pictures and sounds, the latter being equally important field for exploration. The speed and volume of sound outline dynamically changing background of events. The randomness of emotions and demands are the delusions of the culture that we are living in, the culture that we konw how to live in. The attempt to introduce changes constitutes a multilevel reflection on the existing reality. Internal and external conflict, reminiscences and events. A memory of words.

This project is a journey into the depths of our unconsciousness, the search for the harmony and a question about the symmetry in the universe. Seemingly neutral sounds and pictures create anxiety and bring up some deeply hidden doubts. Consciousness brings the fear between the perception and the recognition bounded by memories and social establishments.
