Spambot Fiction is the second co-exhibition of Argišt Alaverdyan and Jozef Mrva Jr. The materially different approaches connect common themes, which the authors approach differently.

Alaverdyan’s paintings, whose figures emerge from the unconscious in a collage of the reality of life and the problems of the contemporary world, work great together with Mrva’s works, which are more analytical and critically examine our reality with the intertwining of the online world and the issue of digital technologies. This entanglement is found in Mrva’s work in the form of knots, where he was inspired by Knot Theory, which is a field of topology that focuses on mathematical knots that cannot be untied without being broken. For Mrva, the knot is a metaphor for repetition, a theoretical concept for describing the cyclical setting of the flows of the modern day capitalist society and culture.
