THERE MIGHT BE NO OTHER PLACE IN THE WORLD
AS GOOD AS WHERE I’M GOING TO TAKE YOU
22nd BIENNALE OF SYDNEY
“The urgent states of our contemporary lives are laden with unresolved past anxieties and hidden layers of the supernatural,” said the curator Brook Andrew. “NIRIN is about to expose this, demonstrating that artists and creatives have the power to resolve, heal, dismember and imagine futures of transformation for re-setting the world. Sovereignty is at the centre of these actions. I hope that NIRIN (edge) gathers life forces of integrity to push through often impenetrable noise”.
Joël Andrianomearisoa’s project “There Might Be No Other Place In The World As Good As Where I’m Going To Take You” will be shown at 22nd Bienale of Sydney, in the spaces of Art Gallery of New South Wales and Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
Joël Andrianomearisoa uses sheer black curtains to initiate a series of veilings, creating a work that rests across and between moments in the Gallery’s collections, occupying a liminal ‘edge’ space. Bearing poetic combinations of words and text, these fabric interventions constitute a playful counter-architecture.
Transcending categorisations based on chronology, style, or geography, they accentuate what is already present – the way our spectatorship unfolds as we cross a room, the way our eyes catch some details over others, or the imagined stories and emotional shifts that can be brought forth by an encounter with an artwork. Andrianomearisoa reminds us that the sensual content of these paintings is already there but is sometimes lost within the ‘civilising rituals’ of museum space.
Following the most recent guidelines set in place by Australian government officials, the 22nd Biennale of Syndey will be now viewable online.
