Ján Skaličan's exhibition confronts us with the pressing issue of climate change, and the fragility of the balance between “the last chance” and “being too late” to avoid or at least soften its catastrophic consequences. It points to the necessity of changing our mindset, lifestyle and taking action, even if this might seem too little compared to the need for global and systemic changes.
