We dig a hole in the floor of the exhibition room across the entire globe. On the other side is Brady Island - no place is further away, no place is more remote. The window installation presents various fragmentary information about the island. Questions are raised about the perception and mediation of places. What information is selected and translated as relevant always speaks about the prevailing power structures and about who is thereby excluded and included.
So does our knowledge about Brady Island actually bring us closer to the remote place or are we left alone with an empty image? And if everyone constructs their own island through imagination, does Brady Island only exist as a multiple variation of many images? Is the idea of Brady Island therefore more like utopia?
