The title translates to "I is another"
The title of this group exhibition refers to the famous saying by Arthur Rimbaud: Je est un autre. The grammatical distortion already expresses the awkwardness of wanting to objectify the self. The self in contemporary art is often difficult to differentiate from the public person and from the brand for whom and for which the work represents. Nonetheless, it is precisely here in this space of ambiguity, where autobiography blends in with fiction, that has become fruitful terrain – a house of mirrors, where no one is what they appear to be.
