The setting of the exhibition functions through interrelations of two artistic concepts which, regardless of the particularities and specificities of personal discourses, occasionally touch and intertwine. Monika Moteska with her installation BREATHING UNDER explores the process of archiving and attitudes towards memory through the ontological need of people for the work and safekeeping (preservation) of their results for eternity. Her installation is composed of two parts in which she examines the idea of "still life" in art, using its historical iconographic symbols: flowers, birds and fish. The classic treatment of this topic is the beginning of the process of contemplation, which the author further develops through the allegorical shift from the basic iconography, opening up the possibilities for new meanings and readings.
