Where to go?
To live and to be and where to go at all. To search. “Adventure may start as pure awkwardness,” wrote the American mythologist and writer Joseph Campbell. The call to adventure emerges when the familiar horizon of one’s life is overcome, when the old ideas, ideals and emotional patterns become inadequate. What follows is a departure across landscapes drawn by solitude, drawn by silence, drawn by emptiness. Across images and things that traverse and expire. Search. Barbara Kanc delivers these searchings untitled in progress directly in front of the viewer and performs them as the [lost] part of our own simultaneously universal existence. As points of in-betweenness, the ‘searchings’ are parts of the journey, of listening and confronting; in solitude, silence and emptiness but constantly interrupted by “noises” from an environment that triggers arrivals and departures.
