The possibility of belonging, to be a part of something, is one of the most generative searches of our physical and metaphysical existence. To occupy a determined time and space is constantly promoted as the ultimate solidification of identity. Yet, in the dialogical experience of being and in contemporary times, dislocation often becomes the referent for our ideas and feeling of belonging -or its absence.

[BeLong] is an exploration into the possibility of belonging, a questioning of the frames that constitute us. These artworks demonstrate the instability and dynamism of our concept, challenging the different ways of belonging to a representational medium, questioning the construction of language and other modes of address, or simply recognizing the boundaries that establish existence. The state of belonging, rather than a fixed and static concept, seems to be more accurately representing by a play with the word’s semantic structure; a constant state of longing, a search for place and space, a fluid movement of the body within the frames of possibilities offered by different structures; a state of BeLonging.
