On 26 October, Friday, at 7pm we will open the exhibition L'intrus at Tabakalera's Exhibition Hall 1.
L’Intrus takes French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy’s eponymous essay as a point of departure. Nancy metaphorically renders the one who is intruding, the stranger, as a transplanted heart. Nancy’s body needs a stranger, but it is also always in danger of rejecting that stranger and, as a consequence, of dying. The implication of Nancy’s text is this: not only is the stranger already of the social body, the social body depends on their presence and on the fact of their difference. L’Intrus borrows this insight, and presents thirteen international artists whose work represents the figure of the stranger as a relationship between the context and the figure.
During the opening there will take place the performance titled Contact / Crisis by the artists Dages Juvelier Keates and Alexis Steeves.
