Outdoor-Exhibition and Symposium at the Floating University Berlin.
Curators: Pauline Doutreluingne & Keumhwa Kim.
Through the appropriation and transformation of certain industrial elements, new mechanisms are created with the intention of moving and giving novel dimensions to the concept of water as a universal element. The starting point is the interest in exploring the capacity of water to move through, transform and dilute multiple physical barriers, as well as the understanding that its degeneration and contamination are mostly the result of cyclical, industrial and semi-industrial processes that cause an increasingly visible slow violence. From this type of violence – immersed and incarnated in the needs of modern society – a critical zone emerges that exposes the accumulation of desires, conflicts and entities that can coexist in a territory. One could say that this offshore installation reveals the boundaries between art and nature at Floating University Berlin: a Liquid Agreement that proposes a dialogue with its surroundings and expands through the collective imaginary and its possible multidimensionality.
