Wars and persecutions force thousands of people around the world to flee their countries and embark on often perilous journeys in search of a better life. Asylum seekers often end their voyage in detention centres where they remain isolated for years. Misplaced and detained, the only tool they have, to survive demeaning circumstances, is their hope of regaining liberty. Only their imagination and thoughts are free.
With this artwork, we explore a contemporary theme by using an approach which entails hope to overcome imprisonment.
The title refers to the old German song “Die Gedanken Sind Frei” about the freedom of thought. By this title, we wish to give our artwork a broader meaning as well. In captivity or under repression, the human spirit will not be broken, and the freedom of thought cannot be taken away.
TACIT GALLERIES has several exhibition spaces under one roof. On the night of our opening, four other artists' shows will be launched as well. You will be up for a visual feast!
