We, Elsewhere investigates the spaces that we create, and that are created for us as a result of collective displacement. The exhibition ruminates on how subjects who find themselves in these spaces react and interact with one another and with their memories. Elements of sound, reconfigured objects, and characters crafted by İnci Eviner evoke the sense of a search for the missing, the erased, and that which is ‘elsewhere’. A certain aggression and abruptness comes out in the characters’ everyday behaviour, informing their identities in transition. The space itself, in which visitors are invited to walk along the ramps, courtyards, and edges, displays permeability, allowing views through cuts and cracks along the walls. The paths punctuated by the objects suggest the way in which memory eases conflicts. Together, the characters, the space, and the paths tell a story akin to Hannah Arendt’s narrative of struggles in We Refugees.
