The inaugural exhibition with its subject directly points to the gallery’s name – FOG is the acronym for ‘photo gallery’ in Slovak, by which we want to emphasise the constitutive character of this event.
Among the most dominant qualities of fog are disguise and mystery. This was also the key for the selection of the works in this exhibition. Hiding, masking or adjusting reality, confusing the viewer or denying facts: these are elements that connect all the artworks being shown. The selected photographs should also represent the oeuvre of each author. We offer an insight into the production of the middle generation of photographers in Slovakia, with their additional, broader context of central Europe, that encompasses the subject of the metaphor of fog.
