If perspective is a manifestation of human control, of mastering the unknown and of limiting the immeseurable, than how shall we call the introduction of the unknown into the familier, of the infinite into the limited?
We could call it "travel", for example. Because travel is not about geography and kilometers, it's about desire, about a loss and about mouvement.
In the Shop at Galaisstraat we will open a Travel Agency. It's a place where travel can begin, as a Travel Agency is simply a set-up that makes travel a possibilty.
The Travel Agency will try to enable travel without physical displacement (un voyage sans déplacement).
We set forth with some questions:
-What's the minimal space needed for a travel?
-What is the difference between here and there?
-Can "elswhere" be rediscover in the "here"?
Our destination is not yet defined.
"A voyage has always already begun; its starting point can only be decided upon arbitrarily and after the fact."
