The work of the artists invited to exhibit in “Uncertainties/ Improbabilities” is particularly authentic and remarkable because the artists radically focus on freeing imagination, on contextualizing visual narratives of improbabilities and obscurities in far-reaching referentiality. The excessive, provocative intensity of the sensual, physical entity of visual creation functions as a subversive, liberating, anarchical and creative force that destroys the ostensible, seductive attractions of the empty, meaningless, superficial and manipulated simulacrum of the world. It deprives this banal spectacle of credibility, and intensifies the vivid, interrogating questioning of references and narrative sources. Some of the artists refer – directly or indirectly – to preformed mythical, historical and conventional imagery, to archetypal, cultic, symbolic tales, to metaphorical narratives
