Sometimes things takes time
Not only because it takes a lot of hours to do them
Not only because it’s too many ideas I want to test
Not only because it’s a lot of thoughts that need time to surface and settle
But sometimes you also need to wait for the right perspective to arrive …
My exhibition at Anafora in Egypt in April was a wonderful event. It made me put everything I thought and felt about Big Heart of Humanity into one big expression. Summing up, becoming clear, find ways to communicate, use all my skills and cooperate with the wonderful people at Anafora and the place itself. It was an amazing process and I’m so very, very grateful that I got the opportunity to do this. I’ve made many exhibitions, but this was the biggest adventure!
After the vernissage the exhibition started to influence me, I changed my view on my project and I changed the exhibition. I made plans for the web exhibition and I changed them, again and again … I had the idea that I wanted the web version to both be true to the exhibition at Anafora and to express exactly what I thought about Big Heart of Humanity at that moment.
When “Who is Embracing?” entered the scene in June, it became totally clear that that idea was impossible.
Through my work with “Who is Embracing?” I’ve got the perspective I needed. I can embraced the exhibition at Anafora, as it was, and give it to you in a form that is true both to what was then and a part of what is true for me today.
So, welcome to the web version of Big Heart of Humanity at Anafora!
