NOT HOME celebrated the beauty improvisation. Unplanned events have less time to be digested or thought through but seem to want to exist as much as a pre-elaborated, extremely envisioned plans that try to fit in a more precise, limited, description.
Re-purposing locations, and having flexibility as a principle, this exhibition in a vacated apartment also mimics the fluidity of life in New York, where we are constantly adjusting – like water in a stream, finding the best way to keep moving ahead. What isn’t in the script may be clumsier, or less trimmed, but always surprisingly powerful. And most of all, open.
