Organized by PastVynerStreet
Closing Event: Thursday 12 January 2012, 6.30 to 9 pm


Rwanda exists, I saw it on CNN

The verb to look and the verb to be are two necessary coordinates that connect two points on a map: to look at X, to be in Y.

To look always implies an action in two directions at the same time: the first action is towards the outside, towards a better understanding of the subject of attention, and a second one towards the inside, towards us questioning the place from where we are looking from.

In order for us to create a connection with the subject, it is necessary that we modify the place we occupy: we move around, we go closer, we take a distance. When there is a displacement from the original position, there is a remarkable effect on us caused by the process of looking.

In 2005, I started to look at the events that took place in Rwanda between the 6th of April and the 31st of July 1994. The result of this process of active looking became this journey through changing of distances.

The exhibition is open by appointment from
December the 2nd to December the 16th, 2011
