DESCRIPTION

ISE Cultural Foundation is pleased to present "Home and Away" a group exhibition curated by Ting-Ting Cheng.
Why do people travel? What does it mean to be away from 'home'? Does our idea of 'home' change and transmute the more we travel, or does it perhaps only come into existence when we leave the physical reality behind? Can we ever simply and unproblematically 'return home' after our travels, and will it be the same 'home' we left? How do we negotiate between our past spatial memories and the new geographical locations we find ourselves in? Last but not least, can we ever really experience a new place for the first time, outside its familiar representations in maps, guidebooks, films, and news programs?
The exhibition features works by artists who use photography, video, and installation to ask poignant questions about spatial identity, geographical belonging, and the passage of time. Suspended between dream, memory, and imagination, the projects presented here offer a poetic reflection on the movement of bodies and minds across cities, continents, and cultures in the age of globalization.
