The exhibition „Discovery of Slowness“ reflects upon current manifestations of slowness, on its quality and form and its relation to reality. The exhibition brings around attention to different perception and experience of fluence of time, that, which is contrasting to current paradigm. „The degree of slowness is directly proportional to the intensity of memory; the degree of speed is directly proportional to the intensity of forgetting… our period is given over to the demon of speed, and that is the reason it so easily forgets its own self. “ (M. Kundera)
Slowness has already become the subject matter and lifestyle of some art communities (eg. Slow Society). "What we need more of is slow art: art that holds time as a vase holds water; art that grows out of modes of perception and making whose skill and doggedness make you think and feel; art that isn't merely sensational, that doesn't get its message across in ten seconds, that isn't falsely iconic, that hooks onto something deep-running in our natures." (R. Hughes for Slow Society). In the exhibition, „slowness“ emerges through a visual-sonic-textual spectacle composed of works by selected artists; however, not explicitly, but as sensual and intelectual clues, as an abstract hard-to-grasp quality.
