• "Fragile, Fields of empathy", Musée d'art moderne de Saint-Etienne, France
then traveling to Palazzo dei Falconieri,Roma, September 29- November 29, and Daejon Museum of Art, Korea, December 22th-march 21th 2010
curated by Dr Lóránd HEGYI
"The FRAGILE exposition presents a selection of a forty of international artists, of which the works indicate a vision both intimate and anthropological of the experience of contemporary life. Through the usage of various media (paint, sculpture, drawing, video, installation), they celebrate the life in what she has of more banal one and of essential one. Neglecting severe absolutism of the definite structures, the different plastic methodologies of these artists reflect an interest for subtle events and microphones narratives, within limitless complexity of our daily one."
