The exhibition Limitrophy is the fourth edition of an ongoing exhibition in foreign objekt Research network


"Through the initial research we have looked at the defects and limitations of the local spaces and their particular constitutions. From there we are looking at the boundaries between the local structure and the universe of which it is a part. When we can answer the question of what the boundaries are, we can then violate or transgress them. Limitrophy offers a strategy for questioning the validity of those perceived boundaries by identifying gaps, spaces, discontinuities, through surveying the interstitial space between that which constitutes and that which deviates.-- Jacques Derrida Limitrophy is therefore my subject. Not just because it will concern what sprouts or grows at the limit, around the limit, by maintaining the limit, but also what feeds the limit, generates it, raises it, and complicates it. Everything I'll say will consist, certainly not in effacing the limit, but in multiplying its figures, in complicating, thickening, delinearizing, folding, and dividing the line precisely by making it increase and multiply. . . . [The limit] has an abyss: The discussion is worth undertaking once it is a matter of determining the number, form, sense, or structure, the foliated consistency, of this abyssal limit, these edges, this plural, and repeatedly folded frontier. -- Jacques Derrida"
