project, 13th of December 2012
A coastline or seashore is the area where the land meets the ocean. A precise line that could be called a coastline cannot be determined due to the dynamic nature of tides.
This line is wider than a shore, but its range hasn’t got a precisely defined border. There are various associations concerning a coastline, starting from a beautiful sunset view, through polluted beaches, to weather disasters. However, the concept which reflects most closely the idea of our exhibition is the context of an irregular shore and a contrast between totally different planes.
Taking into account the combined experiences from different geographical regions, the artists want to create a different space here, in Valencia, using art as a means of achieving their goal. They wish to present their works in an independent place during a few hours of one night.
The Coast is an exhibition based on the principles of high tide and low tide. It appears and disappears.
13 artists came from 4 different countries invited to participate in our project. Their works related to the broad idea of a coast- the concept that brings about extreme emotions in our well-tamed minds.
The fact that the exposition is a curatorial project has the secondary meaning. The main principle is to work with local artists and the local areas. It is not dependent on any institution. The duration of the exhibition is one night during which the artists will be talking with the public about their works.
