Exhibition
Theme: OBSESSIONS
In their creative practice, many artists gravitate towards certain ideas that are intruding on their mind and to which they keep on returning over and over again - some forms of obsessions that drive them to create. The extraordinary perseverance and the willingness to take risks that arise from them are often the driving force that feeds artists' productivity, allowing them to grow in their practice and deliver exceptional outcomes while expanding their singular universe.

Where is the line between returning to a theme or an idea over and over again and an obsessive behavior? Do artists nurture a pathological obsession with their creations, or is it on the contrary the necessary force that will help them persevering despite all the obstacles they will encounter along the way, allowing them to reach a certain form of greatness?

What kind of obsession drives you in your quest for images? What does it reveal about yourself and how does your photographic practice help you grow, both artistically and personally? Does it bring clarity to your deepest interrogations or have any kind of therapeutic function, for yourself or for the people involved in your projects? Does the fact of diving into the obsessions of your inner world help you existing or resisting in an anxious context like the one we are facing now?

All approaches to the topic are welcome, we are looking forward to discovering the ideas that are invading your mind!
