Before ones eies/Ad oculos presents a feminine outlook on a world that lies beyond the borders of gender phenomena. The artists of the Project organically combine a particular emotional integrity and intellectual phenomenality, manifesting the apparency of their creative positions. The stars of European video art, laureates of international forums on radical art and the Venetian Biennale, will meet in a single field of the visual, laying bare the uniqueness of the commonplace. In examining the deeply personal, all the exhibitions participants simultaneously turn to the universal problems of contemporary society. The Ad oculos exhibition reveals a field of finite proximity, focusing our attention on a reality that is plain for all to see, before ones eyes, but that initiates into its dimensions only the person endowed with the enhanced vision of the video camera.
