The year 2021 might seem like the promise of a new beginning, but will the mere addition of a number make our lives any better? The emotions we experienced last year and our collective yearning for change throughout the pandemic have become integral parts of who we are. It seems that what has emerged from multiple lockdowns and widespread isolation, is a globally shared experience of solitude.
This unexpected commonality, a collective cluster of emotions, is resonating even in the virtual space. Though physically separated, we are still here, and art remains one of the fundamental ways we can investigate our inner states and relate to each other. The expressive language of the works in this exhibition can serve as a guide on an introspective journey, to a higher sense of unity which can be fully experienced once we can finally meet again in physical places.
