Salt is a fundamental concept encompassing both physical and mental connotations. Salt is a symbol of the energy of life, it is a mystical element, in essence and in taste. II Moscow International Biennale for Young Art “Qui Vive? is built around the theme of boundaries and border-crossings. The current project entitled “Salt” evokes these notions by negating and undoing borders and frontiers of all kinds. It brings together young artists from different countries who interpret the concept of Salt across borders and cultural boundaries. As a concept intended to structure the space of the exhibition Salt also allows us to draw from a range of works in different genres and artistic movements.
