TURNING is an interactive exhibition of kinetic, photographic and sculptural work created in collaboration with interdisciplinary artist, Lucinda Boermans, and technician, Alan Eaton. It is a creative response to Peter Sloterdijk’s Atmospheric Philosophy. Spheres of Being, a trilogy written and conceived over a period of 6 years (between 1998 and 2004). Sloterdijk’s historically informed theory details “a shift in how humans understand the world, and an ontology of space which is concerned with the particular ‘spheres’ they inhabit.”
TURNING explores space as spheres of influence; it is about poetics of space expressed through movement and sound. It invites us to consider attention and our relational position in the world. Equally, it is about acts of relational aesthetics (of “being in spheres”) realised through process-based enquiry, collaborative exchange and interaction “in-the-making”. As Boermans notes, TURNING took shape over nine months, through the unfolding of tales, recounted conversations, note-taking and emails sent in exchange.
In addition to this exhibition, two complementary workshops will be held for children. More information can be found here.
