‘Welcome to the liminal. In his first solo exhibition, Erik Peters builds on his practice of collaborative worldbuilding to co-imagine a transcendental space with portals into alternate realities.
They are worlds, existing somewhere between the present, the no-longer-conscious, and the not-yet-here. Taking place on different spatial and temporal paths, each world amplifies the others in the space. Together, From Then to Here, proposes a collective quest of sensemaking and imagination: where are we now, and where do we go from here?
As the present is not enough, From Then to Here presents divergent imaginations of how futurity can be explored and portrayed. Offering ways to reflect on potential paths explored by others, the space invites you to also reflect on the potential paths that might arise from within yourself.
Through immersive and audiovisual works by Kumbirai Makumbe, Liminal Vision, Louisa Teichmann, Federico Poni, Camilo García A. and Erik Peters, From Then to Here elaborates on the importance of plurality through a multitude of narratives from a.o. more-than-human, queer, and ambitopian perspectives.
