“Versus” is an
attempt to treat the
concepts of rivalry, powerplay, jealousy, competition
and egoistic ambition. Not only in relation to art and the art world, where those concepts
are constantly present as distinct set of social patterns, but furthermore in society as such
and in particular contemporary culture.
The “battle”, the competition and the determination to be “number one” has become
the underlying foundation for a long range of activities all included by the term “culture”.
The exhibition examines the mechanisms of rivalry in contemporary culture.
"I refuse to battle - I am not afraid to die" was the main message, placed in an object.
