It is conceived as a corridor of time that echoes the indeterminate passage of our days as we navigate through this global pandemic. The exhibition stages our return to one another and to shared public spaces. The works in the exhibition manifest acts of care-taking through the handling of different materials, and the commitment towards uncovering possibilities of living and relating even through difficulty and uncertainty.
