DEEDS CALENDAR: Night Swimming – SCOTTY | until 23.12.2023
The participating artists use a variety of materials to track the accumulation of time or to capture fleeting moments and events. This results in works that can be both memorabilia and translations, and together form an archive of fluctuating objects, snapshots and material or visual accumulations. The title of the exhibition, “Night Swimming”, alludes to the experience of having to find one’s way in a dark and vast space while only being able to perceive what is in the immediate vicinity. The memory of spaces that were once seen in the light, the instability of buoyancy and the constant movement when swimming in the dark reflect the disorientation and vulnerability of memory in the works in the exhibition. Clear understanding seems close enough to touch, but eludes us like a world veiled by water and darkness.
