Plato, give me your smile.
The world (of appearances) is neither infinite nor finite in time and space, since it is not
a thing in itself, […]. We can only assume: the world has no beginning in time and is not
enclosed by borders.

To celebrate its fifth year in existence the Loris Gallery presents thirteen artistic viewpoints
in a jubilee exhibition. The exhibition Plato, give me your smile is a collection of pictures that
convey the diversity of worlds and, as a photographic fan between philosophy and reality,
explore the meaning of human existence.

Each camera image opens up a microcosm in the macrocosm. The world in the world is the
real radius of human movement – fantasy worlds, niches, dream worlds, mental constructs,
worlds of colour. The picturesque becomes a refugium, childhood returns to remembered
places, the past and utopias blend in with the present, and texts assume a life of their own.

We are physically present in some places but mentally somewhere else. It is almost impossible
to decipher the worlds that are more real, the world of fantasy, memory and thought or the
surrounding world of reality.

We constantly reinterpret our environment, which we perceive through experience and
knowledge, and observe from our own perspective; some realities cannot be seen with the
naked eye, others are so dominant that they almost leave no room for anything else.

Realitites unseen by the naked eye can be perceived in a different light only under a
microscope, in a detail, in reorganization and juxtaposition. The works shown in the
exhibition raise the issue of how much reality fiction can endure and vice versa, and lead
to the conclusion that a walk through our own world is more meaningful than our location
via temporal and spatial coordinates. In this context, the philosopher in his permanent
search for meaning, gives us a smile that connects diverse worlds and a cosmopolitan side-
ways glance from the austere epicentre toan infinite universe with thousands of centres.
