THE 4TH OF EACH MONTH IS OUR 4BIDDAY, AN EXPERIMENTAL DAY FOR EXHIBITIONS AND DISCUSSIONS.
4bidday featured Artists:
Brigitte Borm(NL) -“waiting for the tide to turn”(Exh),
Laila Van berge(IR) – “ایران کوچک “(video)
This edition will host Brigitte Borm, with the installation “waiting for the tide to turn”. Waiting for the Tide to Turn reflects on the role and representation of volunteers who are assisting refugees in Lesvos. Having become a volunteer herself, Brigitte Borm explores this practice of helping at the external borders of the EU. Beyond humanitarianism then, the exhibition points at volunteers’ experiences in their multi-vocal complexities. Through audio, moving image, quotes and photography the visitor is invited into a subjective space to rethink the heroic imagery surrounding volunteers – as well as dominant perspectives on the politics of migration, refugees and global inequality in freedom of movement.
And Laila Van berge with ایران کوچک a video about Iran:
“From Khomeini to Gucci, from Chador till Nosejobe, this video-installation is my interpretation of Iran. Where the eastern and western sentiments come together. Last summer I spent a month in Iran where I got inspired by the contradicting yet intertwined culture. “
