Identity

🌸

Lapinlahden Lähde

1.12.2022-31.1.2023    opening 6-10 pm.

At a given moment, our identity depicts who we are. It may also explain why we act a certain way, wear certain things on our faces and bodies, as well as the never-ceasing impact of our ever-changing environment. Part of our identity also comes from deep within. While trying to understand this complex structure, we may posit that our identity has several layers. But, of what nature?

We all belong to a multitude of groups, sets and landscapes at the same time. We believe in various philosophies that help us run our life. We have adopted a wide range of values over centuries, but at the same time we follow trends after trends that shape our thinking. What makes us different from others? What is it that keeps us attached to others? What is it that we may precisely call our own? Then, what are the things that we share? What is the limit of this sharing? Is a value shared still a value? Or is it a trend - to be replaced by the next thing that will sweep us off our feet? Who are we? Where does our identity come from?

The exhibition Identity contemplates on the questions of shared and private, external, and internal interfaces.
