- You are working with a certain circle of artists. It has been formed somehow...What was the determinative in shaping it? Your taste?

- One has to realize that a gallery is an element of a cultural machine and if an artist doesn't recognize it, then neither he needs the gallery nor gallery needs him. As to selection criteria, they are pretty simple. First of all, such an artist is to have a command of contemporary visual language, secondly, has to realize himself as a part of the art history context. In the third place comes his aspiration for becoming a part of today's world's context; everything that is happening now in the art-world is a coordinate system where the artist seeks his own niche. Art has to relate to the epoch, sort somehow with the Weltanschauung, technology level, condition of society. The forth context, lastly, has to do with the personal creativity, artist should have his own way, keep at it, be recognizable (in terms of art business as well) and at the same time be able not to repeat himself. If an artist has a sense for these four systems, if he is talented and has an art will, then he is practically of a definite interest.
