[a]drift

21. juni - 23. juni
Utsillingsåpning fredag 21. mai kl 18:00 - Performance kl 18:30

[a]drift is an exhibition project that implies the need to create own spaces from the relationship with objects and new cultures. The accumulation of photographs, recordings, notes, found objects and actions for camera to create a way to relocate the memory and the reality of a body in movement, in constant changes through unexplored territories. It is inevitable to return to previous references in a different context, in this way it is possible to create new interactions between the artist and the surrounding environment. The work is the journey, life is drift and the body is a port.
