FARAWAY / NEARBY

EXHIBITION

Opening: Saturday January 27th 2018 // 18:00 - 21:00

The artworks presented in the group show Faraway / Nearby approach in a very peculiar manner the act of coming together. Even if misunderstandings and conflicts are never to be excluded, these works show possible strategies of getting to know each others. Points of contact can be found through opening up a dialogue with people walking in the street or by observing from afar what's going on in a particular spot. These junctions are sometimes due to the chance or they are even intellectual encounters; in other cases, they are the result of a long personal or family history. The works presented in Faraway / Nearby sometimes take us to distant places, but the proximity does not guarantee to know who is in front of us. Language obviously plays a key role, but it's also important how the artists position themselves. In this way, the exhibition tells about the uniqueness of every existence and tries to open a reflection about how this uniqueness is built by relating to the others.

With works by Aisha Adepoju, Herman Asselberghs, Duane Michals, Fairuz Ghammam, Alfredo Jaar, Maria Jerez & Edurne Rubio, Ria Pacquée, Shelly Silver, Bo Vloors, Chu Yun-tien.
