Sleepover (2014)

Skeptical Thoughts on Love departs from artistic perspectives, which conjecture multiple forms of attachment, intimacy, and obsession. Methodologically speaking, it is inpsired from the physical reality, potential impact and transformative power of love. The exhibition speculates on the potentiality of love as if it is the only possible form of resistance for cognitive/collective revolution in our contemporary solitude, demands silence as a conceptual tool to deal with human relationships and art works, and proposes to operate as a testing ground for introspection, self-analysis and self-reflection.
