Undisclosed Recipients II

TAF presents the exhibition "Undisclosed Recipients" until 31 August 2011


The term Undisclosed Recipients is most often used in today's electronic communication in case someone wants to send a message via email to a number of unknown (unrevealed, secret) recipients.

On this occasion, we investigate the issue of the artist - artwork - viewer relationship and examine in what way the artwork becomes a communication tool, i.e. an 'intermediary', between the artist and the viewer.

If the viewer is necessary as final recipient of the creative process, how does he in turn perceive the work? How does he read it and in what way does he appropriate it?

This also brings forth the question of the relationship between the artist and his/her work. Does the artist ultimately take the viewer into consideration at the time of the production process? Are there any 'unknown - secret recipients' to whom the message he/she wants to convey is intended? Or even perhaps subconsciously during the 'artistic act', does the artist open a dialog with the viewer that lies within him?

This exhibition includes 23 upcoming artists who, although they seemingly appear to be somewhat heterogeneous in terms of their morphological and plastic elements, all try by their own means and through their own personal code to communicate with the public. The basic element that 'ties' these artists together and unites them under a common purpose is the structural need itself. The need to have their message reach its natural recipient.
