Gatherings of exiles and émigrés and refugees; gathering on the edge of ‘foreign’ cultures; gathering at the frontiers; gathering in the ghettos or cafes of city centers; gathering in the half-life, half-light of foreign tongues, or in the uncanny fluency of another’s language … of other worlds lived retroactively; gathering the past in a ritual of revival; gathering the present”Homi Bhabha, The Location of Culture
“In-Between You and Me” is an attempt to understand the spatial temporality formed between individuals in a foreign land. The exhibition endeavors to comprehend various artistic visions from disparate locations around the world and present them in a liminal space. The space is a starting point that triggers the interactions and juxtaposes different narratives. The boundary between the viewer and the viewed gets diminished in this liminal space. The actions, sounds and gestures construct a dynamic aura within the space that leads to a potent question – Does the space between ‘Us’ and the ‘Other’ exist? Or is it merely a fictitious cavity that we imagine?
Featuring works by Christiane Huber, Enrique Lanz, Wolfgang Obermair and Jagrut Raval.
