The solo exhibition of the artist Katarina Balunova, who participated in London Bridge residency program, founded by the Slovak Arts Council.

The exhibition presents a collection of paintings and site specific installation using found objects by Slovak contemporary artist with international background Katarina Balunova. She follows her research about the city, social structure and dwelling  with rare insight, sensitivity and originality.

The buildings are not just objects, but artefacts with meaning, or signs dispersed across some larger social text. The architecture has the capacity to articulate in a very specific way thecontradictions and ambiguities that modern life confronts us with. The structure of cities of nowadays is subject to a strict geometry and it is in perennial expansion. We can see the constant changes in the urban form, pattern and structure. The geometric pattern is a typical feature presents in industrial society.

Geometry is a key element to understand social and industrial development in the modern landscape. In Katarina Balunova works the use of geometric shapes and structures is becoming the testimony of the industrial society marked by an existential crisis.
