The moniker “Paradigm Shift” is used to describe nonconsecutive anomalies that transform the processes of intellectual thought. Such shifts fuel advancements of society. Not observable without context of history or time- these changes define ages on reflection. Artworks pushing their inherent creative medium from the present into the future were selected for this exhibition to contextualize what has been and what may be.

“Capital of Nowhere” gathers artworks together that envisioning a variable environments. In traditional societies, generations would come and go much faster than habitat would change. Catastrophes changed landscapes, be it natural or human in origin from volcano eruption to migration to asteroid to cultivation. In contemporary times, variety is introduced quickly into landscapes by prosperity or adversity. Over the last century, industrialization, urbanization, revolution, wars, construction and reconstruction – each lead to a generation living under conditions different than previous ones.

The exhibition, “Capital of Nowhere” , is about life in a changing landscape during the Information Age. Among exhibited artworks personalizing effects of industrialization, urbanization, revolution, wars, construction and reconstruction are  Gubanova & Govorko’s breathing sculptures of heads in plastic bags and Vitaly Pushnitsky’s hybrid painting projection “Waiting” juxtaposing the transpiring of a sunrise over the existence of archaic columns. Contributions by CYLAND CoFounders include Anna Frants’ new media installation “Made in Ancient Greece” which plays with ancient vessels as modern subject matter and Marina Koldobskaya’s ideal city painted on found fragments of old furniture.
