The theme of the exhibition:

To See and to be seen. To see is the conclusion of the confirmation by theartist's verification by touching the barrier in front of us. The barrier may have been hollowed out or emptied. When the scientists lead us to explorethe black hole, the unknown of the blackhole would constitute us. Itis like the artists who leadus to an empty hole and when open it for us, the empty hole willlook, involve and form us in a sense, we should only close one eye to see.

This unknown box is like an artist distorting the object after time and space, while the viewer imposes as an character to beseen. When we watch, asthe second releaser to see this behavior, whether in this process we constitute ourselves, or we force ourselves to accept the ones during the process?

James Joyce mentioned in Ulysses that,“ineluctable modality of the visibleat least that if no more, thought through my eyes. Signatures of all things I am here to read, seaspawn and seawrack, the nearing tide, thatrusty boot. Snotgreen, blue silver, rust: coloured signs. Limits of the diaphane. But he adds: in bodies. Then he was aware of them bodies before of them coloured. How? By knocking his sconce against them, sure. Go easy. Bald he wasand a millionaire, maestro di color che sanno. Limit of the diaphane in. Whyin? Diaphane, adiaphane. If you can put your five fingers through it, it is agate, if not a door. Shut your eyes and see.”

The body is the original object of all knowledge and visions, we perceive the objects in front of us through our own organs, but when we see the thing, why there is always something in there looking at us and forcing us to accept it inwhich, in that object inside? "Why in that object?"

During this exhibition, the artists describethe black box as a carrier to the uncertain thinking about the seeing and to be seen. While the viewer acts as a viewed character,who participates in it,and it is the process of viewing that make up the people themselves.
