The blind pale distances
The blind pale distances keeps people apart. It configures moments of connection and separation along ideological lines. The works presented in the exhibition formalize notions of isolation and encounter. Referring to visual and physical barriers limiting sight and bodily movement, they position the viewer in relation to an imagined interloper as a way to consider the affect of their imposition and the potential of nearness.
