We live in a constant state of Future Shock. The human consciousness, conservative by nature, faces ultra-rapid development of technologies in all areas of human culture, including visual entertainment. After taking in what they see and hear, people try to hide in the archetypal and conservative nooks and crannies. Still, even there, they face something they can't comprehend. The paradigm "I saw, it means it was" fails constantly.

EPISODES exhibition is about the collision of something new, still imaginary, but almost real ultra-modern with the worlds of comfortable everyday life. This exhibition is about fantasy becoming a reality, mixing with our world of everyday rustic archaism and forcing it to evolve in the worldview.
