The project associates this curatorial themes with the personal transition, from the utopia of artist isolation to the post-isolation dystopia of the contemporary present, with the transition from the homogeneity of private intimate space and the remains of solitude, to the heterogeneity of loneliness, where speeches multiply, compete and overlap.The curatorial concepts do not intend to design a linear history of the dialectics of isolation, but to explore how the different dialectics trigger a certain state of mind in the viewer. The exhibition focus less on the analysis of the concept of isolation as an expression of a quasi-normative scenography with anthropological and cultural functions, of politically coordinated private spaces, and especially on the sensory (visual) and cultural exploration of the incomplete, abusive, necessary nature of the drawing and its effects on individual artistic practices, following the conversions, and procedures that altered the functions, aesthetics and types of relationships existing at the level of the individual's intimacy, of its cultural landscape, identifying certain phenomenological and behavioural patterns.
