Private View and Special Opening


Halfway to Paradise is an orgy of the senses. With films and photographs dealing with the realm of the imagination dragged into a formulated reality or visa versa a formulated reality dragged into the imagination. Some films contradict themselves: pleasure and pain, absorption and rejection, creation and destruction, innocence and fabrication, with all the images both complimenting and simultaneously questioning each other. They deal in abnormality reflected in the daily routine, creating an endless cycle of social conditioning which is of itself an obscenity. There is new work created especially for AREA 53, with its amazingly organic historical atmosphere, which blends ideally with our work and easily coexists with the existing work that has been included.
