In response, Aurora Király’s TALE (2013) sequence of acrylic on paper drawings map out episodes of stress and anxiousness with textual content overlayed as processed trauma by way of storytelling. Adelina Ivan displays on the creative technique of sketch-to-work by way of drawings and erasure poetry texts, resulting in the simultaneous making and breaking, an implicit self-annihilation and rebuilding that takes place within the studio. Evoking the identical Deleuzian idea of differentiation by way of repetition, Sebastian Hosu images his personal works after which paints over the pictures with oil and charcoal, conceptualizing the relation between actuality and illustration within the sequence Reinventing my footage (2020).

Unravelling the method of making an art-show, we mirror on what it means to be an exhibition-maker within the present social and financial local weather, however the absurd and not possible challenges that may generally solely be met with humour and dare.
The gallery house – a playground / an area of each escapism and confrontation / an area of permutations and likelihood.
