FREESEARCH: From IM_possibilities to in_possibilities

For this work, I collected documentary sequences of sound/moving images and notations from disparate geographical locations such as from the environment between the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon (Teotihuacan about 40 km northeast of Mexico City), island Örö & Kökar in the Baltic Sea, Starnmeer, Riga and some I received from London (thanks to Akor O. S. Opaluwah) and merged them into a spatial narrative without giving specific pieces of information and hints of where we are located across regional national and cultural borders and time zones.
Sound/moving images/notes and references come together without hierarchy in a format that rather materializes these questions and topics outside of a fixed, scientific explanatory model. I created a place where this instability of knowing&understanding and how we approach the world is challenged. Instead, it offers a space to drop us for a moment – to let ourselves be carried away – by the possibilities to a state in which we create lines of connections/relations and ideas (or not).
A confession of love to the uncategorizable, non-canonical, beyond fixed categories that allow you the easy and fast way of plugging in and checking off with AHA I understood – –

FREESEARCH: From IM_possibilities to in_possibilities is a hybrid constellation of concerns relating questions of agility/movability of people, theories and things after the edge of knowledge referring to political as well as poetic aspects of it and their un/visible margins.
Also about the stabilization of affinities beyond territorial constraints. But not exclusively on an academic level! It’s more like a historian is supposed to try to „capture“ the world as close as possible „as it is“, while from the perspective of an artist you can try to capture the world as it could be. That is what I find very interesting within this specific spatial narrative.
However on a purely verbal level, it doesn’t make sense to describe it, because it includes both acoustic and non-verbal elements, it’s more something to drop in or out.
