“I will defend a weird realism. This model features a world packed full of ghostly real objects signaling to each other from inscrutable depths, unable to touch one another fully.”

Introducing this show of a somewhat mysterious title with a fragment from Graham Harman’s ‘‘On Vicarious Causation’’ might refer to both inevitability of thinking through objects and duality of such thoughts. Since the Objects belong to the
realm of the real they are constantly escaping us. We cannot do anything but keep on training our sensory apparatus to distance from itself. The act of sensory perception is the never-ending story of the vital, like two ends of one piece that never meet each other although they are connected permanently. Meanwhile the transient refers to border territories of matter and its nature, of life and nonlife. Even the strongest can be fragile. What are these spaces in between, are they only given to our instrumental use or is there a mutual poetics exchange revolving around the properties of objects?
