“Coordinate”

The geographical coordinate is a blind mark on the map, but it is also an important component of identifying
the place when it comes to art. Today, all aspects in which the work is created are important, but the
questions of who and why create the product and what kind of society will be the consumer of this product
remain unanswered. In the streams of information, the image loses its value, especially when it is not
supported by a text or a tag and is not tied to the coordinate of a particular culture. However, recent trends
point to the fact that geographic coordinates are more interesting than other layers of meanings. At the
same time, the location as a form of declaration helps to understand the context and to complete the image
of the artist.
Transcarpathian art often speculates on its cultural clichés trying to reproduce the line of ties to the great
totem of authorities. Therefore, today we are trying to show a section of Transcarpathian art, although
fragmentarily, but objectively, without a literary entourage. At this exhibition, we are presenting a
generation of artists related to Transcarpathian art today, and the geographical coordinate points to the
exact location of the exhibitors’ workshops. It is unlikely that this method will enable the "naive" viewer to
understand what is happening in the exhibition hall, but will allow the perception of information in its pure
form.
