The exhibition Neither Here Nor There presents the works of eight artists who all share the same birthplace – France and who voluntarily migrated several years ago to New York City. Not quite from one side or the other anymore, a nonnative constantly oscillates between two realities, fully belonging to none.
Through mixed media, sculpture, photography and painting, the artists of Neither Here Nor There examine this state of being slightly “out of tune” and how their experience may have impacted their work over the years. The exhibit also aims to highlight a common thread between all the works – a feeling of detachment of the human figure from its urban environment, within a context of personal narration and a touch of absurdity.
The sense of isolation and fragmentation that can emanate from the works is nonetheless often counterbalanced with whimsicality and humor.
