Sublimina

"THE IDEA OF THE BORDER BELONGS IN A CONSTRUCTIVE MANNER TO THE ART FIELD AND ITS TERRITORIES.
ART IS ALWAYS THE TEMPTATION,
THE PROPOSAL, THE ATTEMPT OF A TRESPASSING."

About

The project aims to give visual form to a reflection on the concept of a border in a historical moment in which the question of the insurmountability and redefinition of old and new geopolitical borders is manifested in all its criticality.  The current theme of boundary is addressed not only in its geopolitical component, but also in it's anthropological and philosophical component.  The randomness of the boundaries, signs marked by man to create a demarcation between the self and the other, are being investigated by the curatorial collective through the works of fifteen artists active on both the national and international panorama. The works, making use of multiple languages, give visual form to this idea of border: reconstructing it, narrating it or simply invoking it.
