Travel, time zones, jet lag, departures. The disquiet of our globalised lives changes us. We have to stand our ground in constantly changing circumstances. What we have to do, where we have to go, what time we have to arrive – it is often our calendar that dictates all this. But where are we, who are we and what belongs to us?
PERSONAL TERRITORIES is an exhibition by six international artists whose works pose questions of how we move – continually crossing borders, blurring time, meeting changing expectations.
Photographs, videos, installations and performances prompt reflection on borders, borders as barriers, borders as portals to the unknown – and reflection on lack of boundaries. Physically bounded territories become readable as symbols, the effect of symbolic boundaries on the intimacy of the body.
The artists move as travellers, experimenters, seekers of refuge, correspondents.
Curated by Kerstin Karge and Sharon Paz.
