Give me a fulcrum, and I'll turn the Earth upside down Archimedes of Syracuse
In physics, a fulcrum is a fixed point on which the arms of a lever rest and around which the arms rotate. That is, in essence, it is the place on which the force rests. The human body has a skeleton - a supporting skeleton, thanks to which we can stand, sit, walk. What is the supporting structure of the human inner world? What makes us able to get out of bed every day? What allows the soul to recover from anxiety, to overcome obstacles and trials? What enables us to feel calmer, more confident, to take every next step, to develop?
Small joys, home, family and places of strength, reliance on one's inner world or the search for meaningful social connections... Artists explore sources of inspiration, joy, sustainability, harmony through different mediums, trying to build a dialog with the viewer and find an emotional response.
This exhibition should be seen as a quest, as a journey, as a journey that we embark on in order to learn more about ourselves, to remind ourselves of what allows us to stand on our own feet, and maybe even to learn how to give support to our loved ones. The safe, careful space of the exhibition is filled with many details and surprises that will allow the viewer to become a co-participant in the artistic process, to let the metaphors pass through them and to receive a powerful charge of energy.
