“ This exhibition represents the collective image of a protagonist who is an indeterminate and unclear character. However, it would be strange to demand clarity from people at a time like ours, there is one thing that is certain: our hero is a strange individual and an eccentric figure.  Some may deem that the strangeness and eccentricity are more likely to harm than deserve attention in a world of people who are desperately striving to identify particularities whilst searching for some common sense in the general muddle. A new question arises: eccentricity is detached and isolated, isn’t it? If you do not agree with this and think ‘No it is not’ or ‘Not always ‘, here begins our inspirational moment. Not only is the eccentric figure ‘Not always’ or ‘ No it is not’ related to the particularity and isolation, but on the contrary, it so happens that the eccentric one, perhaps, carries a core of the whole existence at some points, but the rest of the people, by some other kind of strangeness, at times are breaking away from it.”
