contemporary art exhibition

tidal flow Revisited is the next step. Some artists have changed. Some works of art have been replaced. All the artworks go beyond the limits of imagination and open doors and worlds. They are traces which partially and silently remain and which must be given a meaning, and are interpreted as a projection of our own spiritual and cultural frameworks.
Above all, a work of art is an adventure of the mind. A non-negotiable theory which is difficult to grasp. Does the viewer have to show restraint? Does he have to flatter? Discuss? Perhaps it only needs his attention.
Let’s take a journey to the core of the human phase where something happens. Where the sequential change of knowledge is given in pictures and in concepts. Where knowledge meets philosophy. The artwork projects an image, but, at the same time, it is a form of work and action. It is a projection of the inner ego, what we call internal necessity, but for me the most important and the less obvious, is the philosophical approach in response to the request of the universal life that we live.
This mainly arises from the different attitude on the part of artists, a position that gives emphasis to the idea, not the object.
In all the presented artworks, the artists theorize less and deal with more, with a light and humorous mood, social data focusing on specifics, condensing the materials and forms.
This exhibition provides visitors with the opportunity to see and hear a multimedia oeuvre, where, by stealing the title Tidal Flow, I thought that this project could, through its works, give us answers to a series of issues which are being discussed nowadays.
