Departures, 2021 – Showroom MAMA
This exhibition, cast in the form of a travel agency, invites you to explore the position of the tourist. This travel agency does not focus on the destination. While this exhibition places itself within a globalised form of tourism, a specific geographical context emerges, namely the point of departure. This travel agency replaces the travel agency’s model aeroplanes and photo wallpaper with a research station where each work explores its own geography and journey. As a potential tourist in this setting, the visitor is advised to investigate their departure point before the inevitable eruption of post-pandemic travel. Where do you want to go next and how? What will your point of departure be?
