The costum of listening to or reading travel experiences, pathways towards something distant and not yet reached, made that the imagery to what is distant and unknown assume a greater importance in determining our perception of geography and meaning of our presence in some places.
Depending on how a place or an event, for example, are told in pictures or words we tend to place them in a space, to construct meanings and projecting wishes.
Precisely because the constant dialogue of the association 22:37 grows at a distance, trying to maintain a critical approach on issues deemed urgent not only in cultural, but also the social context in which the association is active, for Indipendents3 22:37 proposes a reflection on nomadism and imaginary, presenting two projects that explore, challenge and expand the geography of some places.
Out of Place_an ongoing archive is an open and continuously upgradable archive, which was established with the aim of providing an overview of the widest possible range of theoretical references and ideas concerning the concept of nomadism in relation to the forms of contemporary artistic production
The installation contains around fifty documents sent by artists, critics and curators who have made their contribution to the first corpus of the archive.
Behind the project is the idea that being out of place is the condition which enables a person to continuously reposition himself in one place. This process, not only physical, it is necessary to build the constantly changing sense of our presence in the space.
The visitors will be asked to contribute actively to the construction of the archive by participating directly in the cataloging and indexing of the various contributions present in Out of Place. In this way, as a guest desired, the archive will find its temporary location within ArtVerona.
