‘Where is Home?’ curated by Zviko Mhakayakora (Main Space)
‘Where is Home?’ explores different ways in which the concept of home is formed when immigration and other factors are considered. Home, then becomes a term that shifts depending on the person who is defining it at that moment. Through the use of design in art practices, projects in this exhibition consider how contemporary design and art can be used as a tool for reclamation and decolonization of the concept of home.
Featuring: Xhesika Gaba, Karina Iskandarsjah, Zana Kozomora, Annie Patiño Marin, Maxim Vlassenko
Calder Harben, Bodies of Water (Project Space)
‘Bodies of Water,’ by Norway-based Canadian emerging artist Calder Harben, combines projected video with live-streamed audio from the OBSEA Ocean Observatory that is located 2000 meters under the sea off the coast of Sicily. The installation explores how we understand the sounds we hear, and the emotional space held by listening.
Monica Moraru, In My Bedroom Noon is the Darkest Time of Day (Window Space)
Monica Moraru explores interactions between the self and ubiquitous visual culture through multimedia, ranging from painting to photography and sculpture/installation. Influenced by kitsch materials, Moraru’s work contemplates the ‘real’ and the ‘fake’, the unique and the cliché, and the handmade and the mass-produced.
