We are proud to present the virtual version of the DEPARTURES FROM THE SPHERE exhibition.
Looking at ways of connecting the curatorial/ artistic propositions of the Both Ways partners, the online component of the exhibition, created specifically for the virtual environment with an experimental approach, can be seen as a reflection on the possibilities of the virtual space as a medium for contemporary art. Moreover, it references artists’ gestures and preoccupations with transpositions from the bidimensional plane to the three dimensional space. It is placed in a cosmic scenery, in which the viewers are invited to discover and interact with the works. Not being bound by the limitations of physical space, the viewers can try different ways of experiencing art, such as flying from one work to another or wandering around in space.

Online visiting schedule: August 29 – October 1
Departures from the Sphere presents a selection of 8 Romanian artists of different generations and expressive languages, ranging from photography, drawing and sculpture, to video and installation. It makes use of multiple, unconventional media, such as anachronous circuitry and biological materials. The works’ point of departure is primarily the artistic experiment, resulting in different situations of interaction that allow the viewer to recreate the mesmerizing quality lived by the artist/researcher in the moment of discovery.
The DEPARTURES FROM THE SPHERE exhibition is part of the BOTH WAYS project – a physically polycentric exhibition held in five European locations headquartered in Trieste, as well as a replicated and expanded online exhibition, practically available worldwide to anyone who enters with his avatar.
