MIRAGE MIRAGE  

Ambra Viviani + Inka ter Haar 

 

3. März 2017 – 17:00 – 21:00

 

 

On Friday, March 3rd from 17:00 we will open the doors of the TANK for a few hours just for you to have the opportunity of looking at the result of two artists, Inka te Haar and Ambra Viviani, reflecting collectively on the hard markers of Modern Western construction of a state’s territory: borders! MIRAGE MIRAGE is an interplay of different artistic languages taking the space of the TANK in a peculiar manner. Even the title mirrors a song, Voyage Voyage, as an ironic play with the idea of traveling as the embodiment of the dream of discovery and freedom. What if we move from a space of “places” to spaces of flows? What if we rejected the way the Western perspective thinks and represents territory?

 

 

MIRAGE MIRAGE

Above the capitals
The lethal ideas

Watch

MIRAGE MIRAGE

Don’t stop

Above the barbed wires
The bombarded hearts

Watch

MIRAGE MIRAGE

Farther than night and day

In the extraordinary space of love

MIRAGE MIRAGE

And never come back

The Students’ Kingdom is the name given to the TANK when students claim it as an experimentation place, a laboratory for their practice in order to present and challenge their work in an open space as well as to foster a dialogue with the public.
