The various works making up this exhibit reflect the rich variety of modes and media used to read/transcribe the world as so many configurations of geopolitical or cultural or ecological spaces, each creating private and/or public worlds to decry the ordering of human experience into civilized and barbaric, old and new, polluted and pure, sacred and fallen; or, on the contrary, to celebrate human experience as a text of desire, possibility, imagination, and creation.
