In der Biennalen-Sektion von UiU
The 12th Bienal de Cuenca is conceived as an open thought process, in which the artworks form different thematic constellations by emphasizing a set of independent, yet equally interrelated concepts. The Bienal's conceptual nuclei have to do with issues that are not only relevant for contemporary artistic production, but also for society as a whole, particularly in the historically and culturally stimulating context of Ecuador and of Cuenca, more specifically.
The title of the exhibition is based on the Ecuadorian expression "ir para volver" ("leaving to return"), which describes a physical and temporary absence (frequently even without a definite duration). While highlighting the state of movement as the key aspect of many artworks and practices included in the exhibition, this expression also situates the 12th Bienal de Cuenca in the undefined field of speech, emphasizing the importance of dialogue and of the mixture of apparently distant, disparate, and even opposed forms of knowledge. Leaving to Return signals an ongoing dialogue that takes place far away from the rigidity of strict and polished discourses and ultimately delves into life itself.
