Transit zones, waiting areas

Plumba Contemporary Art, Porto, Portugal 

curated by Nuno Perreira 23rd September – 26th November 2006

These are registration drawings which intend to represent the elusive moment when we see without being seen. It is an instant before being exposed as observers.  An airport is a place where one feels like a stranger, as if the place were a metaphor for the Flight of Icarus, where the big adventures begin. It is a point of arrival and departure, where the most intimate emotions are thrown onto a non-place without identity, in another reality. The language system of airports can be interpreted in a deeper way. Descrip­tions such as “choose your destination”, “departures”, “waiting areas” and “terminals” indicate a zone of transgression between safety and danger, freedom and dependence, the known  and the unknown, the familiar and the strange.

During the ritual of arriving and departing, crossing the gates we leave our previous life behind and give it to the airport services, into the hands of destiny. There is a point of no return, where “see you soon” no longer exists and instead one says “goodbye”. Life in a new place begins. Life, with all the luggage from previous travels, is a set of waits and passages, where we anxiously await the next stage. Being in transit becomes a daily sensation. Maybe all places are places of waiting and of passage. What comes next, what are we going to see, who is going to see us, how will they see us? Maybe everything is only a long voyage made of short pauses between the long waits.
