About “Movement” and “Stagnation” in the City…
Exhibition: The city feeds on the tension between ‘movement’ and ‘stagnation’.
Time flows fast in cities; the morning and evening are close to each other. Everyone is tired.
People are actors of a continuous state of ‘movement’.
Doesn’t the city stop? Don’t the people take a breather?
The mind that sees, senses the movement of the city, also has to find the limits of stagnation.
The city flows…The person experiences the stagnation in this flow, if only for a moment.
Then these must be the moments when life becomes meaningful…
