The exhibition was the basis for the collaborative effort between Illya Chichkan and Mihara Yasuhiro. Working together in the uncharted boundary where art and fashion meet, they examined the past, present and future of the Eurasian landscape through various cinema metaphors.

The installations were located inside the palazzo and in front of the Academia Bridge. Both artists demonstrate a single, unique vision regarding travel, identity and consciousness.
