shelter, a short English word with multiple ramifications. It evokes the hermit, the poet, the refugee, the homeless person, the destitute, the domestic or wild animal passing by, the wanderer as much as the metaphor, the urgency, the necessity: to inhabit / to think – to join and meet / to share – to transport? to move? to hide? to
(re)settle? … to play?
Through images and text, shelter explores and declines fundamental questions – rhizomes and rebounds -: what are we building? for whom? why? who do we protect? from what? how? what is a shelter? a ladder? A scale? – a shell? a value? a temporality? – who lives where? how? why? with whom? what does this shelter, do these ladders, and scales, mean to you, us, them? To me? Could Memory (or love?) be the ultimate shelter(s)?
