Between One Shore and Several Others

‘Between One Shore And Several Others’ is an enquiry into the transmigrations of concepts, their assimilation, internalization, and the evolution of identities. Identity is an ongoing process embedded in everyday social practices. Ideas that shape one’s identity are usually local – local places, local customs, local histories – but in todays world the availability of alternatives allows one to escape the circumstances of one’s origin. The osmotic nature of this interplay permits for a translation that does not seek to reclaim the context, but to adapt and expand the vocabulary of the concept.
