Thresholding is an exhibition that activates the threshold, taking a perspe=
ctive from the inside out and from the outside in. The threshold, as a plac=
e where one cannot stay, and the act of thresholding, the suspension betwee=
n places, is the site and activity involved here. Laying out lines and trac=
es between outside to the inside, between the city and the art space, the s=
ocial space of the cafe and the exhibition space, between public and priv=
ate space, this exhibition ties, separates and bounces back and forth. Evol=
ving over 6 weeks with works, temporary events and performances linking the=
art space to the social space of the city and of the ether of radio and te=
levision, thresholding will be registered in its course in a weekly appeari=
ng catalogue.
