No Man Is An Island

Solo exhibition No Man Is An Island,
Keitelman Gallery, Brussels — 2016.

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind...” John Donne, 1624, Meditation 17, from Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions.

John Donne's text was the starting point of this exhibition, which evokes exodus and exile through the landscape and the crossing of geographical, economical, and political areas.

While for some, walking provides a feeling of freedom and wholeness, there are also millions who walk, first to escape, eventually to attain freedom — which might come next... if they ever arrive at their destination.
