DISTANCES MAKE PATHS BETWEEN THEM | AIFRIC PRIOR BELIERE
16th – 26th Sept
Limited Capacity Booking Essential
Distances Make Paths Between Them is a multimedia installation relating to humans’ experience of Earth. The works employ a romanticised perspective of this experience, found in collective imagination and memory through cinema, art history, advertising and story-telling. The exhibition is concerned with humans’ tenuous connection to Earth which battles the colonisation of other planets, climate disasters and the epoch of socio-technological relationships. These themes are imitated within the space with a curiosity towards intra-action and hierarchy.
Through various acts of looking, designated by the artworks, a picture of the relationships and associations fundamental to the processing of our time on Earth is offered. This picture is not explained or defined, but exists as the relationships it enacts between times and materials; the same can be said for the Universe.
