We have experienced living in an era of exilic experiences, ranging from global to personal level. An era overloaded with fragmentation, estrangement and distance. Moving from familiar realms to foreign spaces, we have observed opposing poles of the world, and ourselves. More or less we feel in a state of duality, transience and ambiguity; a state of being estranged to ourselves, and to others. Transiting from one end to another, form one state to another, we observe the slippage between boundaries and opposing ends.
Artists represented in this exhibition have gone through a journey from within to another outer space, in an attempt to rediscover themselves. They have experienced being distant and observed themselves from distance. The selected artistic experiences challenge boundaries and have different approaches to investigate concepts such as presence and absence, inside and outside, east and west and self and other. Can we go beyond these binaries and glue our fragments together?
