On clear days, the North African coast can be seen from the coast of Malaga, a view that feels like a revolutionary vision. The horizons, each from its own shore, remind us that, beyond those 14 kilometres of deceptively calm waters, we can see each other.
At present, the African and Eurasian plates are in a constant state of rapprochement. With this in mind, it is easy to imagine the opposite process: a slow rifting that began some 225 million years ago which turned Pangaea, a unique land surrounded by a single ocean, into the broken pieces that are our continents today.
Since that progressive event where earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, shaped the new landscapes, climates, physical boundaries and places to be, much has happened for humankind. While we live in human time, the earth continues to change at its own pace and Africa and Europe are approaching in a powerful slow way.
The new frontiers have been endlessly redefined in the course of that ancestral geological union, a conflicting journey that has challenged our bond to this day. From this present moment we can perceive how borders have evolved in complexity but at the same time, in the virtual space in which we all live, we are witnessing the creation of new ways of crossing, of meeting, of apprehending each other.
This new bridge is built of travelling questions that go back and forth, driven by the journey itself. As humanity and as artists we are in a constant search for meaning and we ask ourselves how to enlighten this path, how to make it more tangible to be crossed with conviction and without fear but with curiosity for the unknown.
