Nowhere Now Tracing
Portugal National Museum, Lisbon, Portugal
The current tension and diverging statements in art challenges us to re-evaluate our personal criteria in the composing of visual concepts. It takes more than just visual or acoustic reception to understand the works, for they are synaesthetic, appealing simultaneously to the visual, acoustic and physical perceptions of the viewer and captivating in their precision, no conclusions drawn, however, the use of pre-recorded soundtracks to accentuate this atmosphere. The starting point for Nowhere Now Tracing is the corner, 'the boundary between interior and exterior', between indoors and outdoors, between Russian and Abstract; there is an archaeology of politics and of people living and working with that. The relationship of the fictional world to reality is reflected in the constant preoccupation with the relationship of photography to painting and of either to experience reality, as readers, we fill in the gaps of her text and imagine far more than what we see, carrying our own interpretation of the lines.
