The Virtual Concreteness
This event has ended.
There are two dimensions of reality, the “virtual” and the “actual” – virtuality is a part of reality, and the access to the abstract dimension of reality is based on the enhancement of concrete existence. In other words, while the entire world moves towards virtuality, matter proliferates correlatively.
This exhibition aims to examine the juxtaposition of the social and ecological crises caused by the technological overproduction in the digital age with its increase due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Digital trash invades the actual space to keep the virtual space running, while laborers produce the entire postmodern apparatus in poor conditions.
The works exhibited at “The Virtual Concreteness” use a visual language based on symbolic motifs of virtuality to deal with these issues. From different perspectives, each artist will present polysemy and the complexity of virtuality.
