Humans search for ways to reach some kind of renown, praise, honour or immortality, through physical and intellectual achievements. The need for glory can be powerful and in order to obtain it many undertake tasks with great effort, risk and sacrifice. This exhibition of media art installations includes visionary contemplations and speculations on how some divine things could work, in both hyperrealistic and altered proportions. The installations reflect on how intimate and universal topics are perceived and categorized, on mankind’s desires to embrace and conduct reality, as well as on one’s limited power and helplessness. As a collection of short stories, ‘Related to Glory’ is composed through a set of self-contained scenes, which wonder and react timeless concerns such as the search for ultimate meaning, the pursuit of gratification, the sense of curiosity, the inevitability of isolation and the inescapability of death.
