7- 16 September
What is that light that softens the lines and the angles of the universe over there? Through the windows, through the roofs of overpriced AirBnbs, through the shades of overcoloured skinny lattes, through the icy-glass lenses of iPhone cameras, that light goes and wanders.
Me myself, I am just copied and pasted; repeated and displaced. I find no settlement. I decipher the same dune of the same desert in different places. No sound and no shape will be produced by my lysergic, vertiginous floating. The North will fuck with the South, while the East and the West will spit each other until the saliva will cover the ravishing orgy of spatial and temporal coordinates. The birds will murmur, dispersed. The GPS satellites will clash and scream. And the horizon will die over the tourist.
And the Horizon Was Dying Over the Tourist is an exhibition gathering new works by Maha Ahmed, Kristaps Anc?ns, Emma Corrall and Nicola Lorini. Curated by Federico Sargentone, the exhibition analyses the dynamics of contemporary nomadism and ubiquity through sculptural objects, paintings and forms of discourse that reside in the space between them.
