”Liminality” is a collection of street posters gathered from all over the world since 2004. From the extreme political to the purely commercial, events that have already become history scream out messages and propaganda intended for city streets in a special purpose. Things that have happened but are now passed and only remain as fragmented traces.
Messages written out from walls in the public domain, some of decisive events, presidential elections and protest marches, others small events, important for a few.
NATO campaign in Afghanistan, Trump’s election campaign, propaganda of suicide bombers, the presidential election in Ghana, the battle for the Finnish humor on DVD and a missing dog in New York.
This installation, much like the city itself, is constantly changing. New posters will be added over time, others will decay or be destroyed in the artistic process. The posters becomes like a second skin, layers of some small part of the history of the world, and if we examine them today, they tell us something about the past.
Dark times. Perhaps we have been there before. Every time the world changes, some of us rightly predict an apocalypse.
We are individuals in a small group. We investigate, interpret, process, associate and relate. For a while, a piece is created with our work together, one of many pieces with voices about our time.
