Out of Place
March 22, 2021 | Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde
A group show suggesting we can be out of joint with space as we are out of sync with time
Starts March 22, 2021
Ends May 22, 2021
Our place in this forever shifting world is the starting point for Out of Place, a group show featuring works by Vikram Divecha, Mohammed Kazem, :mentalKLINIK, Haleh Rejaian, Hassan Sharif, and Raed Yassin. Walls—the ubiquitous spatial parameters of our daily existence—are re-thought, either as vanishing witnesses to a collective human hum, or as neat stacks of discarded ‘designated waste’ from a tunnel wall mosaic. Out of Place proposes a moment of disjunction, suggesting a state of being out of joint with place, the way one is out of sync with time. Whether seen as a eulogy for our times, as one artist puts it, or as a monument to insignificance, Out of Place raises questions about space, surface, and how we are, perhaps, articulated by our material interactions.
