As creators of exhibition content - artists, coordinators and curators - we repeatedly face various installation botch-ups. Our minimalist works wobble on the carelessly put together cubes, they get damaged in last-minute shipments and fall off gallery walls, along with crooked nails. Even though we quietly curse at the improperly used bubble wrap, we know we are not allowed to shout.

Hence, we decided to follow the beaten path and create the exhibition that would provide a polite commentary on the situation.
