Tomorrow will see the opening of You Are Here!, and exhibition that gathers contemporary artists whose works explore the notion of territory and is part of the Brussels Art Fair’s side program. The ideas of maps, trails, space, borders, landscapes and explorations are evoked through photographs, videos, drawings, paintings or sculptures by artists CasparKatie Holten, Dan Graham, Frédéric Fourdinier, Peter Downsbrough, Emilie Pischeda and Valentin Souquet, as well as photographers Steven Shore and Michel Mazzoni. In this day and age of globalisation, it seems that our world is ever shrinking. Yet art manages to perpetually explore and re-invent this very same world, just as “constituting a territory is almost akin to the birth of art,” as French philosopher Gilles Deleuze duly noted.
