The show More Real Than What We See (Più reale di quello che vediamo) is the Italian debut of the New York based Polish artist Anna Ostoya. Following her participation at the last Athens Biennial 2009 and at the Manifesta 7 in Rovereto 2008 the Car Project's gallery is proud to present new works made in relation to Bologna and its context. The exhibition contemplates the concepts of reality, information flux, and the vertiginous stream of history. Ostoya's new works include different mediums such as sound sculpture, painting, and collage.

- Tell me this. What kind of painter is allowed to behave more unspeakable, figurative or abstract?
- The world changes first in the mind of the man who wants to change it.
- He spoke about lost lands, failed states, foreign intervention, money, empire, oil, the narcissistic heart of the West, and she wondered how he did the work he did, made the living he made, moving art, making profit.
- What you see is not what we see. What you see is distracted by memory, by being who you are, all this time, for all this years.
- Natura Morta

Falling Man, Don DeLillo
