Ebb & Flow is an exploration into the instabilities we may face in our everyday modern society. Coming from a city where constant construction and demolition takes place, Abu Dhabi is filled with the anxieties of change but also the fear of remaining stagnant. Today our metropolis urges to constantly transform, while simultaneously finding itself in moments of grief of what has become forgotten and replaced. Yet even neglected objects in a ship graveyard take up new transformative landscapes of their own. They may lose their frame and structure or intersect into a greater entanglement with one another. Nothing truly disappears; whatever has disappeared may return to us as flotsam and jetsam.
On view: April 11th – April 15th, 2017
