New digital exhibition,
presenting the works of artists
from Artocratia Market
The digital exhibition Common Points is a collection of different views and artistic ideas, a collection of different ideas about beauty. It is accessible from anywhere in the world. The exhibition presents works by artists you can easily find on Artocratia Market.
The idea of finding common ground, of building bridges instead of walls, seems infinitely old and banal. Why talk about it?
Today, it seems as if we have once again begun to look for differences rather than for what unites us. "This is our culture and this is not our culture," they have said. The world seems to have begun to shrink to the boundaries of an understandable ecumenism, and then it's not interesting. There, further on, Baba Yaga, who guards the reserved forest and, as in fairy tales, a distant kingdom where people with dog-heads walk backwards and eat a sandwich with butter upside down. In these moments, I like to remember that a sandwich can be eaten in a thousand different ways, and not only right or wrong, that everyone does it in their own way, but something else is important: we all eat sandwiches. We speak hundreds of different languages, but we all speak languages, and our skin color may be different, but we all have skin, and we may love in different ways, but we all love.
The digital exhibition "Common Points" presents completely different artists: they work in different media, explore different themes, one is just starting his journey and one is already recognized, one works in digital and one does painting, graphics, uses carpets. The digital space in general is created without borders and frames: everyone can access everything from anywhere in the world. Perhaps this is why we associate the 90s, the period in which the Internet was created, with freedom and openness. The exhibition "Common Points" wants to remind us of the possibility of this dialog of everyone with everyone, of the possibility of access to what is important and interesting for us, of communication and interaction across borders.
In the exhibition, we used the digital possibilities of displaying art and played boldly with formats, turning small graphics into huge canvases, some works hanging conditionally on the walls, some free to walk in the space outside the building. We have made several levels that you can walk on, climb up, and one work floats freely in the air. We invite you to walk through this space of diversity and unity, to find common ground and to enjoy art that can exist beyond boundaries and even beyond physical predetermination.
