In these strange days, when it seems that the world has slowed down it usual rotation, the works in the exhibition turn our gaze to rotational motion through the image of the carousel.
As children, the carousel brings us joy, excitement, and wonder, but as we grow up, it becomes an object that triggers nausea, dizziness, a sense of losing control and disorientation.
In a world based on narratives and linear progress, the circular movement through space offers another possibility. One that is not measured in achievements, progress, or output, but rather in a repetitive motion examined in terms of duration, perseverance, speed, and the return to a familiar spot.
