‘Two Hopes’ is curated by It reflects on a multi–layered picture of a post–ideal society from the artist’s perspective. It intends to shift the standpoint from the objective to the subjective, investigating the artist’s experience in the contemporary world in opposition to the magnificent utopian dream.
