Artists: Carly Butler, Hyang Cho, Elsa Mora, Vessna PerunovichAnila Rubiku.

For different reasons, shifting their place of origin will set the destiny of five female artists: Vessna Perunovich, Anila Rubiku, Elsa Mora, Hyang Cho and Carly Butler (respectively born in Serbia, Albania, Cuba, Korea and Canada). 
The physical distance between their places of birth is not an obstacle when exploring certain instants in time that question the limits between the absent and the present, between weakness and strength.
The exhibition examines existential and autobiographical elements: these elements attract us not only because of their emotional power in perceiving reality but also because of their acceptance – and modification – of it. The drawings, unique impressions, objects, sculptures and videos weave ambivalent stories that loop in private or collective scenarios. Shrewdly, each of these five artists conceives a non-conventional conceptual narrative that revisits the past, scavenges the present and alerts us to the future of human conduct.
