Until 5 June at Parsec, the exhibition ‘Strange Strangers’ by Esther Gatón, Caterina Gobbi, Sofia Albina Novikoff Unger will be held.
The title of the exhibition refers to Timothy Morton’s definition of “other beings and our being as other” in his essay Queer Ecology, stating that “for us, other life forms are strangers whose strangeness is irreducible.[…]
Strangers are simultaneously disturbing, familiar and alienating. Their familiarity is itself alienating, and their being alienating is familiar’. Between them is an intimacy that, Morton continues, ‘needs to think and practise fragility, rather than domination, fragmentation, rather than holism, and deconstructive uncertainty, rather than aggressive assertion, multiplying differences, growing through complete reification’.
