How is human behavior shifting in an age of telematic possibilities? More than ever, the internet offers us ways to know about distant countries and places without the necessity of being there. This new type of access should extend one’s personal experience and sharpen the view onto foreign cultures. Instead, the political trend these days shows that the medial irruption of the unknown into our lives can also create incomprehension and fear of the “stranger”.
In contrast to what google shows under the term “Fernblick” – holiday places with view to beautiful landscapes – the exhibition offers a view into the distance by bringing into focus gestures and actions that form their own environments. Sound and listening are utilised as the means by which to define an artistic position between yearning, memory, homeland.
