The main part is process work which has been generated with the way of numerous punching of tin sheets with an awl. Then artists physically try to break through not only an ideological and information protective screen which can be compared with Soviet isolation policy but also borders of mind, so a viewer can see his or her own images and perspectives in an abstract double-sided picture of the sky. At the same time a punched sky turns a utility fence into a light airy thing, carries hopes.

During the creation artists is holding on a metaphysical dialog with the emptiness, as the picture is shaped with aggressive acts and resistance of a material which main function is enclosing. The dialog isn’t friendly sometimes but it is always possible. Thus physical absence becomes a form of being.
