Israeli artist Shir Zilberstein works within the connection of the individual to the inter-personal. How do we, through our own free will, trade freedom to the individual for the language of pleasure and pain. What are willing to trade in the tolls of negative for the affirmation of the positive? Further more what Is our common breaking point in which our own personal sense of self brings us back to hold us as an individual who can walk away from our societal connection?
Californian artist Ted Titus delves headfirst into the inescapability of the other. That by the very act of our existence we are stuck in the connection that we in a way owe to our fellow being. What is the place of our agency when we feel need for validation and conflict within each other? This is work to fight for the value of the individual against our own natural inclinations.
