Somewhere, Away is an exhibition of works presented by CONSTANCE ARI. The show posits a want for belonging, and proposes that distance and desire can lead to a deeper individual understanding of place and persons.
The artists selected for Somewhere, Away belong to our island, but are currently gone, (New York, London, Lisbon, Melbourne), and in their state of absence they create and send back an expression of yearning.
CONSTANCE ARI is currently ‘away’. Away from a physical space, on-going funding, and a traditional form. This doesn’t mean we don’t belong. We are always away, but always somewhere.
