The visitor enters the exhibition space through a colourful curtain. Immediately, the big floor sculptures catch his eye: white bulky forms with tubes sticking out of them. Somehow, they remind us of human figures divided into groups, increasingly seeming to merge with each other. A box of embryo-like shapes, which are connected by tubes, is shown at the wall. They move in an in and out breathing rhythm. In front of a different wall, there is an installation with a TV, a typical TV-chair and a floor lamp, all of them objects, which can be found in many living rooms. A video is playing on the screen, it shows the artist herself, clearing out wardrobes and shelves, stuffing the contents into blue trash bags. Colourful, relief-like wall-objects made from detailed, tessellated pieces are shown at the walls. Approaching them, the visitor sees that they are tablets. Maybe now he consciously realizes that he entered the room through a curtain of tablets embedded in silicone.
