I am convinced that in art exist still unrecognizable areas of what is invisible, hidden from the sight but maybe constituting its essence. It is connected with the creative process during which imagined things, space, places are called into existence and they are becoming physical. To which extent what’s imagined materializes in the drawing or installation? Is it somehow possible to define the process of this change? It is hard for me to say if in the functioning of the imagination exists some kind of the order or the mechanism determining this transformation. For this process might be responsible a big amount of different fragments of the imaginaries, emotions connected with the spirituality, dreams, needs, memories, cognitive processes. Supposably, the relevant artistic form is created somewhere at the contact point of these spheres. This process can happen fiercely or be a time-consuming investigation which leads to materialization. The character of this process and the accompanying changes paradoxically cause that the material form of the created works contains their imaginations of what is invisible. The resulting, physically tangible spaces include the particle of the non-existent place.
