Picturing Peace


'What are you thinking?' asked Vito Pace, the artist behind 'Kontora Mir.' In reply, he received images from Europe, Russia and North America, including those of champagne, two old men in a cafe, a toy boat on a sea of feathers, a woman reading Chekhov in a bubble bath, and more. With no imposed commentary, the project presents a kind of visual group meditation on the multiplicity of associated meanings. Viewers should draw their own conclusions since Pace positions himself as the passive transmitter: 'the images I recieve, I send back out to the world.' Send him yours. - Helen Varley Jamieson
