The exhibition design by BUREAU coalesces the nine installations onto a warped, distorted system of lost orientations and collapsing grids. Orientation signs and navigational devices cover the surfaces of the exhibition, extruding at times to create supports for texts and information.
“Once the power game of North-South or East-West classifications becomes blurred, as a clear result of the current state of geopolitical upheaval in the world, what grid system will be able faithfully to order or re-order the geolocation of physical and virtual presences? Is the Cartesian coordinate system still politically acceptable? Was it ever? Indirectly, the endless nature of the grid also opens up a discussion on borders, frontiers and domination agendas.” — BUREAU
