In an email discussing this exhibition, Sandra Sterle writes in an almost aphorismic manner: ”Oscillation is the repetitive variation, typically in time, of some measure about a central value (often a point of equilibrium) or between two or more different states. It is in a way that the exhibition could be a search for the equilibrium. It can be done in different media, also in different subjects.” Maybe this is an apt delineation in order to understand what a gaze on the magnificence of the commonplace that departs from hybrid identities might be: An oscillation present in the gaze itself. Yet and at once a form of optics concurrently related to what Michel Foucault describes as “grey, meticulous, and patiently documentary” operating “on a field of entangled and confused parchments, on documents that have been scratched over and recopied many times.”
