Homecoming – Carrick Bell and Hannes Ribarits, Chelsea Triangle Space

homecoming

If someone told you time traveling was a possibility.

If someone told you they have done it on many occasions.

You would laugh at them, wouldn’t you?

That’s what she had said.

I go over these words in my head

now that I am sitting in the empty hotel room.

I go over these words and I think to myself: can it be true?

The ashtray still containing the ends of the cigarettes she smoked.

It’s not at all how you imagine it.

It’s not at all how you imagine it.

An exhibition of works by Carrick Bell (US/DE) and Hannes Ribarits (AT/DE) including immersive installations, paintings, moving image and murals. Curated by Emma Gradin.
