Somewhere emphasizes the idea that every movement — individual, social, artistic, migratory, political, philosophical — has an end, a goal, a destination. More specifically, this exhibition underlines the notion that that destination is naturally tied to the identity of the body (individual, collective, political) that aims at it. In other words, the choices we make as we go along our personal or collective paths necessarily influence and determine the person or collectivity we then become. Going Somewhere is intended to act as a stopping point where visitors can ponder over those choices.
What is more, ZK/U itself will play on its inherent relationship with the notions of movement and identity — as a former railway depot; a space of exchange, dialogue and creation; and most strikingly as a site of migration and displacement, where fellows come and go throughout the year.
Throughout this exhibition, we hope that visitors will ponder the meaning of movement and migration as well as their relationship with individual and collective identity. We hope that, once the installations are dismantled, the thoughts, ideas and responses of the participants will remain and continue to move and be shared. In that sense, this exhibition will itself, in fact, be going somewhere.
