Calmness, solitude and silence are scarce. Stillness is a commodity in a frantic 21st century.

It is difficult to notice the moments that make one feel the presence of one's own being - even more so to hold on to that awareness when the feeling resides, overtaken by the tide of external influence. When do we ever distance ourselves and simply observe, taking a step back and noticing what is in front of or around us instead of indulging ourselves into constant monotone patterns of living.

Stillness in Motion is a collection of work that focuses precisely on this process of observation. In a fast moving culture, people, and especially city-dwellers, tend to overlook moments of stillness, silence and awareness of the self, rarely looking inward.

The short-lived nature of such moments play with a sense of irony, time and communication through the quick sketches and unfinished drawings shown in this exhibition.

A direct connection is made between the works and the space that is famous for its constant flux of people, the bustling, dynamic atmosphere, and where the door is always open to the conversation between and the reconciliation of experiential extremes:

The self-awareness of the individual and the hive-mind of the crowd.

The quietness of observation and the cacophony of circumstance.

Stillness and motion.
