The way these four artists develop their research is individually unique each represents a complete artistic world. Despite the difference in their works and topics that they research, they each develop their own contents keeping an individual artistic dimension. Even thought the message is connected either to social or existential topics or it’s a reflection on art, this content lies on a very deep level, it lives in their artistic cosmos and never exits it, never makes the effort of approaching the public too closely, never please the public being more direct, more obvious or more agreeable. This artistic generation is finally detached from the leftover ideas of regional context, on the contrary, their art stands for itself, it's auto substantial, it's the kind of art that lives out of time, out of trends and is independent from its specific context. Art operates on a specific level: it lives in the intersection of meaning and sign, and an artwork is an artwork if sign and meaning are interconnected indissolubly. This “encrypted” language speaks loud by itself.
