In Medias Res is a culmination of multiple artistic views and responses to shared circumstances. A group of developing artists away from their many homes were able to bond over their common status as the Outsider. This amalgamation of concepts and feelings comes from Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Hungary, Turkey, Portugal, United States of America, Romania, and Slovakia. And of course, they converge here, in Poland. Being an Outsider forces one to adapt constantly to unfamiliar environments, resulting in an intense homesickness and longing for the familiar. An Outsider truly finds themselves in the middle of everything, between home and new experiences, between the past and the future, between yearning and excitement. With this in mind, In Medias Res is the latin term for “in the midst of things,” effectively representing the time and space in which this group of artists reside. Their dialogue of sculpture, printmaking, photography, design, installation, and performance invites the viewer to join in the uncanny position of the Outsider.
