NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

This text reflects the present condition of the exhibition. after negotiations, the idea has risen to accept C. Carolina’s 7relo candy image as the visual common denominator of the exhibition.

to avoid possible troubles, it must be said that bandmerch and the shirt of menopaul support this choice for the following reasons:

a) the choice is a motivated declaration that is in contrast with the situationalist-empiricist approach to art of the last decades. the motivation resonates with the late modernist artistic reality in general … the ones in the know know; this is indeed an additional dimension that is either welcome or not

b) 7relo’s so called mechanism functions as an umbrella that combines in a non-semantic but pure and sincere manner the endeavours of us all

c) as time keeps on ticking by, the condition that refers to the saturation of speech as such seems increasingly more certain. the digital sphere’s characteristic of conveying the structures of meaning through a double-hermeneutic prism creates the danger that it can be buried under its own weight

7relo slides through these difficulties with playful naivete. the structural elements of relo7’s candy image (a la its questionable composition) create a dynamic that joins together the mental image and the actual matter defining the mobility and suitability of the present material

At that moment something broke in me
And I understood that we all share the thirst
The strong, bitter, tormenting, burning, raging thirst
Merely the drinks are different
