Belenius initiates the season with a group exhibition aiming to demonstrate as well as explore the idea, or concept, as art form and subsequent consideration over aesthetic or material aspects. With subjective composition and semiotics, as well as semantics, it seeks to challenge our prosaic perception of the covenant of the word with the image. A phenomenon that clearly seems to draw a parallel between verbal and visual qualities, thereby questioning the perception of medium and formalism.
The intention to represent and form, and the will to formulate, rings like a leitmotif when a dematerialized stringency appears
