Off the Beaten Track
15 July 2016 to 15 january 2017

On the evening of July 15th, the CIAJG will open its doors again to inaugurate a new exhibition. For the German philosopher Martin Heidegger, whose work has lent its name to the title of the present exhibition, an artistic production is a way of positioning man in the context of nature. Here we ask what the act of producing art might signify. As a specific mode of production, art produces what exactly? Being on the border, at the shore, at the confluence of the industrial and the natural world, it is said that in the work of art “the very event of the clarity of being takes form.” A type of clarification. Of where we come from, who we are and where we are going? Perhaps art is treading a path which takes us nowhere; we choose to go off the beaten track in a forest in order to go off wandering, and in the diversity of nature we have a reencounter with human origins and foundations. This exhibition thus brings together a set of approximations and dialogues with a certain idea of what nature is in a thematicized exercise on the diverse, on what appears strange to us, and how we might come to translate, understand and inhabit what we experience.
