Glorious summer

A scorching summer. Another of many. Three women whose only living-space is one shared room. Their everydayness flows to the rhythm of the light coming in through the windows. This reality was built many years “after the victory” of Richard. The moment “when York has already become the new York”. In this world, Richard is not a figure arousing disgust, a caricature portrait of a dictator. He is not even one person. He is a designed mechanism.

Like Shakespeare’s Richard, the “system” breaking through the walls does not contain any humanity or scruples. It does not have a concrete face, it is impersonal and is brought in slowly, effectively and in stages. It bestows, feeds, fulfils basic needs, maintains a state of an eternally lasting summer, not leaving any chance of reaction or resistance.

The artists refer to contemporary mechanisms of manipulation, to the superficiality of information. They direct attention to the extent to which lack of context or of sufficient information can change the meaning and understanding of the communiqués reaching us.
