Out of Place

Izabel Angerer, Tina Gillen, Penny Siopis, Loreta Visic


‘OUT of PLACE’ presented the work of four young women from abroad. The theme of the exhibition which inspired a Workplace Project, was coupled with research into ‘Mobility’ and took the idea of ‘DISPLACEMENT’ as its starting point.
Generations of migrants colour the face of communities like Genk’s. Looking for a ‘home’ often provides a basis from which to orientate oneself in the world and move on… But what is strange for one is ordinary for the other; a foreigner may feel at home in a foreign country, while a native may feel foreign in his own country. ‘Out of Place’ explores the tensions and the relativity of ‘Security’ versus ‘Alienation’.

From four different angles they showed how a movement or intention influences being a stranger or feeling at home. What external factors determine this and how does the aspect of ‘movement’ become lodged in the mind?

The guest artists were: Izabel Angerer (1969, Austrian), Tina Gillen (1972 from Luxembourg), Loreta Visic (1976, in Croatia) and Penny Siopis (1953, South African). They approached the theme through mutual consultation and dialogue.
