i will not be just a tourist in the world of images just watching images passing by which i cannot live in make love to possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy is a group exhibition of five artists: Hee-Seung Choi, Claire Harvey, Ben Pointeker, Andrea Božić and Julia Willms.
Initiated by Hee-Seung Choi, the exhibition presents recent works in media ranging from painting and photography to video and installation, creating an environment where works are in conversation with one another, shaping an interconnected narrative.
The exhibition title is taken from Anais Nin’s diary. The line aligns with the spirit of the exhibition as the artists assume the role of active participants through personal engagement with what is being presented before them rather than as bystanders ‘just watching images passing by’ .Navigating through multiple realms with different modes and densities of time, the artists question and investigate borders between what is perceived as internal and external; and how these may fold and ripple into each other.
The exhibition is supported by Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and the Austrian Embassy
