Room in a Wall
An interactive installation which explores and activates our relationship with limits/borders. The installation as a space, as a hybrid room-archive that contains photos, videos and texts, recalls the manner in which personal experiences are carried and how public memory meets the private one. The photographic material of Aron Rossman-Kiss, who lives in Geneva, was gathered through journeys along border areas and explores the personal and complex issue of relations and presentations related to the idea of limits. The installation proposes to the visitor the experience, the comparison and the addressing of a multitude of narratives.
