The works of the seven artists presented in this exhibition resonate in the same pitch. The pitch might be the same, but their creative births, essences, lines are different. At times intense, at times unbearable, even shrill, sharp and difficult. A reflection of a time of stifling suppression.  As though certain processes have gotten stuck in certain words - pandemic, torture, surveillance, hunger, senseless deaths. Some of the work in this exhibition are old, some are current and some are new - all of which have been gathered for this moment.  These works which were created at different times, come together now to communicate in a new reverberation, sound, they arrive with a new intonation, reaching new scales.
