Both Cristina Lucas and Anna Ostoya challenge the viewer to investigate possible relationships between different realities. Critical reflection is the goal of their research-based practice. Their work refers to political, historical and socio-economic aspects, rather than to form alone. Lucas uses the different instruments of art to set its critical scalpel in motion. Anna Ostoya draws upon historical avant-garde strategies in a bid to activate works and ideas from the past and imbue them with new meaning.

A characteristic of the present is that it holds a certain potential: the present is always a bit more and a bit different than an isolated moment in history. ‘Drifting and Dreaming’ brings together the work of five young artists. Manifest in that work is a shifting, fluid, unfinished quality, full of potential. It shows that both past and present are, by definition, in a continual state of transformation as they reinvent themselves and each other time and again. What the works of these five artists have in common is their lack of a programmatic approach. Each works in a specific medium without feeling the need to question that medium in a critical manner, being open-mind about the past and the future. Be it sculpture, painting or performance: they play with and in the chosen medium. In the individual stances that arise, the main focus is a contemplation of possibilities: Drifting and Dreaming.
