The exposition is divided into zones:
- the first zone is the introductory and presents works which are executed in the style of minimalism with predominance of geometric forms. This zone symbolizes a person's state before an important path to awareness and rethinking. These are the ideas which a person has in the beginning: he/she reflects on the meanings, discusses important issues, but words prevail, there is not enough personal experience to feel
and understand independently.
- the second zone – Transformation. Here are the works that have a heavy emotional impact. But this burden is caused by a profound meaning, raising important questions that change the person inside, provoke the internal transformation. This zone symbolizes difficult periods in life, which require us
not to break, but on the contrary - to strengthen, make us wise, strong and purposeful.
- the third zone – Art-therapy. Presented here are the pictures-abstractions with pleasant light shades. This
zone symbolizes the necessary charge that each of us needs in order not to lose the Human in ourselves, to
be able to see the beauty, whatever happens in life, to be positive and energetic.
- the final zone – Genesis. Presented here is the most important work on the subject, which embody the spiritual birth, rethinking. The one we encounter through the difficult stages in life. This zone – as a proof that wisdom cannot be explained – it must be experienced. And this wisdom makes us renewed
thanks to the experience that we had. The work will be performed on a white canvas with special invisible paints. And to view the picture, you need to light it with a flashlight.
