Meaning is what Hides the Instability of One’s Position
You’ll never see an airport the same way again: 22 photographic sequences glimpsing fragments of movements through spaces of transit form the most amazing flip-book ever. Andrea Geyer and Katya Sander’s artist’s book is a riveting photographic exprience that takes us through the so-called “transit areas” of international airports, where you’re officially between states and nations, although still within them. The artists investigate these spaces in a flow of images, meanings and politics, overlaid and interwoven with 130 terms and 57 sentences collected in various airports. In a world where the notion of borders has become both more rigid and more fluid than ever before, the artists spatialize the gap through a vocabulary of hallways, doors, lines and identifications that lead to passages granted or denied.
