The title "Mapping" deals with a topic usually associated with cartography - creating maps, or the term from mathematics that deals with functions. The map is a compilation of agreed upon symbols that describe ideas - a flat and schematically small description of the surface of the Earth. In the past, map making was thought of as a secretive art carried out by specialists. The term in mathematics denotes a function that pairs a variable from one group with a variable in another group. It describes the dependency of variables, a borrowed characterization in the fields of science or economics. Maps also exist in different fields - anatomy maps, maps of terms,
etc. The artists participating in this exhibition have mapped their personal or social experiences - stories from their lives and culture to which they belong.
A book summarizing the different stages of the Markers Project (2001 - 2011) will be published and will also contain the art works of the current exhibition.
