WHAT'S YOUR LOCATION? RE-IMAGINED REALITY
Originally shown in Porto Alegre, Brazil, the acclaimed exhibition What’s your Location? is coming to CAP, Kuwait. The latest works of 16 contemporary Kuwaiti and international artists will be exhibited showcasing their development of the themes that made this thought provoking exhibition so successful in Brazil.
What’s your Location? explores what is more real, that which we see for the first time or what we know from experience? Is our memory of a subject more real than its description? What of the many representations of the world; can we take them as substitutes for a deferred reality or the condition of the world itself?
The works in the exhibition derive from artists living in different environments using various means to address their circumstances, and yet they continue to ask these same questions of us. How do we apprehend the world now that we can experience it more easily as representation than at first hand? Where does this leave us?
