Passages brings together works by Sophie Calle, Hamza Halloubi, Stéphanie Saadé and Imogen Stidworthy, which focus on different moments at the two ends of the arcade, as well as the elapsing time between. Different forms of passage are linked, more concrete ones relating to places, situations and narratives, and abstract ones such as the passage of time, which in turn leaves tangible marks. The exhibition focuses on the moment when change happens. Passages is about de-composing this flow, as the artist lays bare its mechanism, or finds anchor points in it, to fix a moment. Perhaps these are attempts to resist the elapsing of time, or to constitute a different past.
