Our contemporary society is shaped by a flux of information and people. Travelers, migrants, refugees...most of us don't belong to only one unique identity, we belong in different origins and places.
“We all travel away to find ourselves in someone else’s home, we travel to find the unknown within ourselves to feel at home”
The exhibition will run from the opening night on Thursday March 2nd to Sunday, March 12th, and will showcase a wide variety of artworks and poetry.
From landscape to captured memories, the concept of Travel will also be presented with lyrical and fantastic artworks to bring us to wonderful and unknown places. Social issues about migrants, homeless or refugees will also be part of the exhibition's journey.
Then these ideas will be linked with representations of Home following a self-investigation : what makes a home? Is it our morning coffee, the couch and the cat? The place where we were born, or the one we decide to settle down? Is it spiritual or real, unique or plural…
All these questions will lead to reflection about our daily lives. The understanding of our world leads back to travel, like a closed circle: We often need detachment by traveling to reach awareness of the world we're living in.
