Understanding the emergence of a new history of the sea and the revision of the terracentric tropes that have always underscored the philosophical comprehensions of human realities, this exhibition explores the ocean as a “place” that gathers images, experiences and memories that necessarily open to a new constellation of aesthetic problems. The videos that are shown provide an alternative spacialization of our imagination and contribute to the emergence of a new perspective on the relation between art, nature and identity.
