NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

The exhibition talks about the meanings of personality and symbol in today's world.

Andres Tali writes:

“Based on this exhibition, it would be difficult to organize an unambiguous and politically correct seminar based on social research. It would also be difficult to define a strong social and ethically inspiring paradigm. It is not possible for a group leader to clearly state what they want to say about this whole thing before the class tour. Every verbal construct collapses before it is formed, and the only way to enter meanings is to be free and to go along with something you cannot define or control. All you have to do is remove the layer of defense against the world and give it more meaning than reality. You have to submit to the meaning of the symbol. To the meaning that is not. To a meaning that is incomprehensible, but which you have long perceived in your marginalized dreams. The meaning that reaches you through this meaningless symbol that you adore and fear equally as childhood unfulfilled dreams of doing something forbidden. To achieve the meaning that must be taken from the protective layer of the subconscious, a pure hidden secret must be taken. Something so familiar and yet unknown; something that comes through the smell of machine oil, through a metallic luster, through color and shape. Through the shape. Something that can only be overcome through acceptance. And that will send you to the end.

You may not get there. Or do not want to reach. Then I can’t help it. ”
