Are We Already Gone?
Artists on the Art of Leaving
FlickerLab Exhibition
Curated by Negin Sharifzadeh
On view September 21st – September 28th
There is an ambiguity and a sense of the unknown in the act of leaving. To leave is to forever transform the thing that
is left, and to enter into metamorphosis oneself, by growth, change of location, status, identity, or death.
Curator Negin Sharifzadeh has gathered together a group of more than 30 artists from around the world, Canada, Iran, France, India, Greece, Pakistan,Denmark,Algeria...
most displaced in one way or another from their point of origin, exploring the transformations they have experienced from this displacement and all of life’s other dislocations.
Ahmed Issawi, Director of Alwan for the Arts, says, “In so far as art should reflect its environment or contend with
the problematics of representation, Are We Already Gone, curated by Negin Sharifzadeh, a variable composition
of installations, sculptures, and conceptual visual and sound pieces, is emblematic of a world of impermanence, of wondering whether one has wandered away or is still here. Not merely are the works themselves concerned with
incompletion, sculptural or architectural suspension, identity not as a notion bequeathed through birth rather as
a transformative ongoing process of migration and exile, but more so in where the “art” is displayed: in closets, on
kitchen counters, workplace, home, if we know what home is anymore. There is a bifurcation of the notion of time
and space. We are already gone for certain, but where we are going or are going qua going is the way it is going to
go, is perhaps what Sharifzadeh, an Iranian in Brooklyn, New York, subconsciously trying to explore.” *EXHIBITION
