In our present day, the self-image and identity of both society and the individual are perpetually shifting. Over and over again, we have to take a stance on who we are and what our place in the world is. The exhibition invites several artists: Taus Makhacheva (Russia/Dagestan), Larissa Sansour (Palestine/Denmark), Tanja Muravskaja (Estonia/Ukraine) and Loulou Cherinet (Sweden/Ethiopia), amongst others. All these artists are born in one country, live in another and work across the entire globe. Larissa Sansour examines the role of myth in history, facts and national identity. Taus Mchacheva depicts the communist legacy and art’s autonomy. Tanja Muravskaja highlights different ways of viewing the conflict in Ukraine, depending on whom one speaks with, as well as how a conflict can shatter friendships and families. Loulou Cherinet is interested in how it tastes, sounds and manifests itself visually when the state materialises in our bodies, conversations and behaviours.
Opening: Saturday 21 September 2pm
