‚One footstep, touching the ground‘

 

Guillaume Barborini explores subtleties in everyday life and probes different ways we can relate ourselves to the world surrounding us. Featuring his „walk“ themed works from a strollological perspective, the exhibition introduces how the artist walks differently to negotiate with both built and natural environments that we normally obliterate under foot in daily routines. The main exhibit „Peninsula“ is a series of GPS-tracked trajectories, in each of which the artist follows his own shadow from sunrise to sunset. Other works similarly examine unnoticed aspects of the act of walking, such as territoriality or accumulation, which we often just consume step by step unconsciously.
