Old Rabbit / New tricks
Images and same situations repeated over and over the course of time, create an overlapping of concentric or intersecting circles. How new is anything when it already reminds us of something? The same idea with a new environment creates an illusion of the new. The old saying suggesting that ‘one cannot teach an old rabbit new tricks’ is reversed when in the end, the old rabbit is the one to bring on new ideas. It takes advantage of the accumulated knowledge and combines unexpected factors with unexpected odds. Knowing the sequence of events and their develpoment gives the old rabbit a strategic foresight, leaving only small details to chance.
Old Rabbit / New tricks, a modular narrative consisting of nine installations on three floors, where nothing is expected nor accidental.
