“To live up to the coincidence logic means, first of all, to be sensitive to the unobvious, something mysterious due to the inexplicability, also to making unexpected connections. Working with coincidence involves conversation, discussion, debates, therefore we propose a form of coincidental happenings aimed at joint, collective interpretation. We also propose a simple sign system, similar to the universal alphabet. Gathered together in the exhibition space, we will activate a study linking the work of art, its location with the speech of the visitor. Our work will most probably revolve around the unsolvable key questions, retold life events, or art-related subjects. After all, one of the ideas behind our work is to break the hierarchies built by the curator, to make a counter-curatorial gesture that releases the exhibition from the preset exposure plan, the viewer from the intended route, and the art works from the interpretations imposed on them.A common utterance, a Moth Revanche will be formed as an outcome, the message which stays beyond the differences between the visible and the invisible (clothing and naphthalene) and represents the transition from coincidence to fallout - beyond all hierarchies.”
