This collective exhibition is a project for artists and the audience to experience the process of 'Catharsis' in art. This cathartic project in art, consists in a process of emotional release and purification experienced by an audience or the artist through artistic expression.

The concept of katharsis has its roots in ancient Greek philosophy, particularly in Aristotle's theory of tragedy. In this theory it was believed that witnessing tragic events in drama could evoke a purgation of emotions, leading to a sense of emotional renewal and clarity. The first recorded use of the term being used in the mental sense was by Aristotle in the Politics and Poetics, comparing the effects of tragedy on the mind of a spectator to the effect of catharsis on the body. On another hand, 'Catharsis' in the Freudian psychoanalysis, it can cause happiness.

In the case of artists, the act of creating art can be a cathartic process. Through painting, writing, music, or other forms of expression, artists may channel and externalize their emotions, gaining a sense of cathartic release and self-discovery.

katharsis in art can lead to personal transformation. This means that, while engaging with artworks that evoke strong emotions or by creating art as a form of self-expression, the audience may undergo a process of self-discovery, reflection, and growth.
