We´ll exhibit artworks which together form an entity named "Emotional Circus". Human life and human experiences contain a large spectrum of emotional nuances. Emotions transmit various meanings. Without emotions the human social world would be empty and meaningless. The understanding of human emotions requires a holistic analytical view, which takes into account man´s consciousness, embodiment and situationality. Emotions are significant part of the human world of experiences. Emotions can be discernible or undetectable, powerful or weak, rich in nuances or solid. Emotions make the life meaningful. Things experienced through emotions have a meaning in the human sense. In emotions live our past experiences, our personality, intentions, knowledge, values and world view. TOOLBOX "Emotional Circus" contains these expressions in the form of art.
