UNEXPECTED TURNS

Participating artists:
bankleer, Anton Čierny, Pavlina Fichta Čierna, Helmut Heiss, Nada Prlja, zweintopf.
 

Exhibition Gallery <rotor> center for contemporary art, Graz, Austria.

Something unexpected happens, makes us question all previous attributions of meaning and may even shake our conceptions of the world. Quite often it is everyday things and acts, things we have already seen and done thousands of times, which are turned almost absurd by a new idea. Why didn’t we know this before? Some truths survive for a very long time, in turn, others take a long time to gain acceptance. This exhibition is organized in cooperation with Kunstpavillon der Tiroler Künstlerschaft.

Nada Prlja presented two works: “Communism That Falling Star of Political Endeavour”, 2010, and “Kapitalismus, The Show is Over”, 2010.
