Remaining Strangers


English / 

Simone Aughterlony returns with an elaboration of the guest/host relation and all that ensues: Notions of the Stranger quickly emerge as those present get involved in recognisable social situations like a dinner party with a DJ and toasting farewellto the things that we have already lost. Folding chairs in constantrearrangement offer seating untilthe sense of locality and momentary belonging begins to deteriorate. We realise the resources are becoming few and largely repurposed. How can we consider the very place we are without the binds of ownership? Acknowledging the infinite difference between people, “Remaining Strangers” hovers amongst the endurance of the return and the discord located in not being able to.
