ISE Cultural Foundation is pleased to present a group exhibition “Intangible Transportations” curated by Erika Pettersen at the Front Space.
As time marches on, the ability to travel to an incredible range of destinations becomes increasingly easier. The Internet has brought this facility of transportation to a new level. With a quick click, we can evade the actual space we occupy and feed the desire for an instant escape. Intangible Transportations creates a parallel between the ability of digital media to “move” us beyond our physical world and the seemingly inherent human urge to experience something beyond our everyday experience. James Feraciour’s QR code inspired pieces anchor the exhibit by serving as a symbol of digital transportation to the homelands of Yukiko Tsushima, Sandra Mack-Valencia and Nurieh Mozaffari. However, what we find upon our arrival are not static scenes of Japan, Colombia and Iran. These destinations are ultimately voyages in and of themselves.
