Palindrome

The Palindrome exhibition presents the work of two divergent art circles, demonstrating the diversity of means of artistic expression yet identifying their common visual denominator. It is a set of works by both renowned artists, artists at the beginning of their career path as well as persons with permanent or temporary mental disorders, often living in isolation rooms of psychiatric hospitals. One of the fundamental assumptions of the show is the presentation and skilful arrangement of the works with a view to preventing the recognition of those by a healthy, professionally active artist and those by a mentally ill patient, isolated and on medications prescribed during clinical trials. This confrontation is meant to assure a common aesthetic level of the works displayed and to pilot the processes taking place during the production of visual art, which processes are revealed to the individual and the general public.
