Some say that only lazy people who have nothing to say let themselves be inspired by the past in this way. We stand within history, history belongs inside a museum….no sorry spectrum, spectrum exists between two extreem points. It is going on but yet it is constantly over. We are standing inside of a room within a room within a room…we see? or are we watching? there is a difference between watching and seeing. It´s like a beginning, a leap.
Welcome to the opening of the exhibition Noway Different by Eva Isleifs in A – DASH at 7th October 8PM.
