Limited Security / Security Ltd.
PREVIEW – Friday, September 4, to
“Security has become an obsessive notion to worry about not only for the nations but also for the individuals. The more the world dissolves its borders using technological means, the more the borders are conceptually strengthened by the preoccupation with security issues. While security measures re-draw the map of our social spaces, they facilitate a change in the philosophical and cultural attitudes too. It could go deep into the negotiation of personal fears to the negotiation of socio-cultural mechanisms in the individual lives.
‘Limited Security/Security Ltd.’ looks into the aspects of how the notion of security moves from the socio-political spheres to philosophical and cultural realms... Also it attempts to focus on the notion of ‘insecure viewing’ or to put it in other words, how certain works of art try to push the viewer out of the comfort zones of viewing. The realm of aesthetic enjoyment, which is secured by the physical conditions of a gallery or a museum space, is sometimes threatened when the works of art in question themselves are intended to rupture the secure notions of viewing.” – Johny ML.
