In the framework of magical realism, the artist is seen as the bearer of a kind of magical ability to “swear” reality, to impart to it — through his creative (interpretative) effort — certain traits, right up to those that would make it acceptable to humans. The space of the new exhibition in APXIV created using this principle.
The rejection of the search for the transcendental foundations of being, justifying the methodology of magical realism, allows us to talk about it as one from the first steps in the formation of a "post-metaphysical" style of thinking in European culture. This type of new thinking is characterized by forms of action as: refusal to search for the final meaning in any text, sacrifice of meaning and orientation to the discretion of chaos in any subject.
Excluding the idea of integrity, the constitution of any picture of reality is possible in only two ways: either through simulation, or through arbitrary abstract modeling of reality as fundamentally non-final (non-resulting) processuality.
Levitate things: discovering universal ideal principles that determine the structure of the perceived and an experienced world, which is seen as being created by the human consciousness, "soaring in the air ”(free from empirical content). The method is based on the desire to consider objects in the form in which they directly appear to consciousness - as objects of intentional contemplation and experiences.
