EDGE OF UNCERTAINTY
On February 9, 2024, at 6:00 p.m., the opening of a collective photo exhibition of the authors Jana Ilková, Dominika Jackuliková, Lenka Lukačovičová and Eduard Kudláč will be held in the premises of the gallery of the General Consulate of the Slovak Republic, entitled: "Limits of Uncertainty". For this project, an informal association of artists working with a similar image code created a concept for the composition of photographs that, in different styles and photographic methods, reflect the increasingly topical theme of uncertainty, fear of the future and the desire for at least provisional (fixed) points of our existence.
The world is not always fully comprehensible and some things may be beyond the scope of our knowledge. In the context of life or decision-making, it can mean coming across a place where it is not possible to accurately estimate the outcome, and where it is necessary to face risk - a place lying on the border (tension) between the known and the unknown, certainty and uncertainty. The phrase "Limits of Uncertainty" tries to outline the area where epistemological certainty reaches its limits and where space opens for the ontological question of uncertainty. It points to the existence of limits to our cognitive abilities, which prevent us from achieving certainty in various things. There are areas where we are confronted with the unknown and the results are difficult to predict. The collective exhibition of the authors aims to inspire thinking about how we deal with uncertainty (not only from a philosophical point of view) and how this uncertainty affects our understanding of reality and our position in it.
