Chair between Chair, or: On the Qualities of a Gaze and the Opening Up of New Narratives
“Chair between Chair, or: On the Qualities of a Gaze and the Opening Up of New Narratives” examines different definitions and views of a supposed “neither here nor there,” developed along the lines of memory and theoretical contextualization. Anna Schapiro questions the notion of the in-between, searching for a definition that allows it to be not just described but experienced and used: what is the meaning of two separated chairs? What is depicted by the space they stand in? How would a present look in which we think in terms of our mutual dependency and connectedness? Does it maybe already exist, and are we simply unable to access it since our thinking and constant fixation on a single chair doesn’t allow us to recognize the space between them as an independent form? What injuries does this produce? Where are these wounds inflicted, and to whom? How can historical books be opened up – how can they be made receptive to multiple narratives, more than one chair, so that we can begin to question the conditions of our own becoming?
