In the course of this exhibition, both artists deal with placing a person in a larger world. They are looking for intertwined places where people, nature, and the universe become an interdependent combination. It is important to remember that the concept of balance varies in different reflections. In this way, this circle constantly acquires different meanings according to the dimensions – through expansion or narrowing when viewed through different bodies.
Both artists have a self-understanding of the relationship between body and soul.. There are common beliefs between them that may differ from each other in the next moment. Combining the inner worlds of these two people becomes a new kind of breathing organism in the exhibition hall.
