It is impossible to conceive art as separated from its time, and although this is something that appeals to all artists, I often ﬁnd that I’m obsessed with the depiction of that time, with the dilemma of encapsulating its perception in a medium that is always insuﬃcient for the fourth dimension."
‘A RIBBON AROUND A BOMB’ were the words André Breton chose to describe Frida Kahlo’s artworks during the time of her first solo show in New York in 1938. The title is both an ode to the father of surrealism and to Frida Kahlo but also a powerful metaphor which functions as a perfect reminder of how art was and can always be a limitless weapon of political and emotional impact.

The show is a personal interpretation of the cycling culture. The concept is free expression, a freewheel of thoughts, spinning in the environment which can be understood nothing but friendly and happy. Keeping the value of the artistic idea high, it is not about anything too direct, but more about the personal approach of each artist.

Contemporary Illustration stepped far beyond the random doodle you see and forget in a blink of the eye when browsing through your newspaper. It stepped far beyond the sole purpose of illustrating a subject matter for the sake of teaching, showing, or clarifying something to the viewer. Illustration today is no longer the tool to serve a purpose, it is the purpose. With these strong words we will hopefully initiate a broad view and discussion of contemporary illustration.
Your personality is based on DNA and develops following your basic patterns during childhood and teenage years. Disorders only occur in a few percent of the worldwide population. But who doesn’t know the feeling of “That’s me!” when reading about disorders? Who are you in this minute and who will you be in the next? We invited Lym Moreno and Markus Tozzer to exhibit at Improper Walls. The process of communicating and working together on this exhibition is the main inspiration. Being two individuals with very opposing personalities the artists decided to work on the complexity of these everyday issues. Lym and Tozzer are creating personas and characters, influenced by their personal experiences, music and observations.
