From inserting contemporary artworks into historical galleries, transforming found materials into art, and presenting exchanges between individuals and communities to giving life to inanimate objects, the works displayed in Nomads aim to shift the viewer’s expectations of the traditional art object, and accompany the viewer in his own journey. Through their engagement with the social space of the everyday, ephemeral materials, as well as strategies of staging and performance, the pieces question notions of authorship, authenticity and, ultimately, the exhibition as a finished product.
