REVOLUTION OF SYMBOLS


ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

What if objects, statues around us were alive and able to talk? What would they say to us?

The emblematic symbols of different regimes are given the freedom of expression in the exhibited videos of the show, and they have their say about the changes of the world around them. However, the 'liberated' statues and objects remain to be the channel of someone else's voice, that is the artist who made them free.

The exhibition focuses on the arbitrariness of the political use of symbols, in a self-reflective, not only descriptive way. Our aim is to simultaneously provide a wide range of information about the history of the symbols and the opportunity to experience the dynamics of manipulation. Also, the show highlights parallelism between current and soviet events and phenomena by consciously pairing them up.
