JULIANA CERQUEIRA LEITE
THE MEASURE OF OUR TRAVELING FEET
MARRES - HOUSE OF CONTEMPORARY CULTURE, MAASTRICHT, NETHERLANDS
25.09.2016 - 27.11.2016
Juliana Cerqueira Leite takes part in the exhibition The Measure of our Traveling Feet, curated by Laura Mudde and Claire van Els. Focused on the social and cultural significance of migration, the exhibit questions what the world beyond the border have to offer and in which ways does travel change the past and alter identities.
The exhibition title derives from a poem by the Irish poet W.B. Yeats (1865-1939) about the changing rhythm of life in modern England during the Industrial Revolution. How does the flow of refugees accelerate today's pace, and how does it relate to the routes we ourselves traverse?
