XCities, the world, human beings, they are all affected by entropy like the inevitable arrow of time. The artists are taking part in this project take a new aesthetic and critical look at the urban landscape, which is slowly becoming obsolete. Like a sort of contemporary vanity, these images are stolen from reality and are later added on again, and act as a kind of fragmentary addition to an incomprehensible and continuous transformation. Everyday landscapes become strange and disturbing, new dystopian maps for the memory and imagination. There is also an element of the collector’s fervour - the desire to rescue certain elements forgotten in the past, or to preserve types of abandoned spaces, remnants of worlds and lives that are bound to disappear.
