How many times has it happened to see things from just one point of view, a limited vision of existence, closed and trapped behind a lens, without having the courage to explore the new meanings of a wider picture? The group exhibition “So close, so far” examines the importance of looking and seeing from different aspects of reality, creating new understandings that only a careful viewer can catch and appreciate. From afar, one can see and admire the entire work, like a landscape seen in all its majesty and complexity. Going closer and deeper, one can observe and discover the details and secrets that the image contains, like the bark of trees or the light streaming through the leaves. The exhibition will accompany the visitor on a journey where space becomes an opportunity to get lost in the details of the artworks and time is expanded by the perception of the viewer. Near and far are two sides of the same coin. Though sometimes foreign and distant, both play equally meaningful parts in the realization of that one side is not enough.
