An exhibition running until January 2014 at Trondheim Kunstmuseum, Norway.
OF VOYAGES, OF OTHER PLACES by John Murphy.
From an introduction to the exhibition:
Foucault discusses the heterotopias, spaces of otherness, which are neither here nor there. These spaces can be both physical and mental at the same time, like the space for a phone call, or the room in a mirror, or take the doctor’s waiting room or the space behind the bordello’s curtains. These spaces do not only resist simple definitions, they are also what Foucault calls our ‘greatest reserve of imagination’. Imagine the ship, the foremost heterotopia, moving across the water but at the same time a space without a space, a space of it’s own, exiting the imagination. Maybe we also should regard the exhibition space as heterotopia”.
