Over dit evenement

Metamorphosis is the outcome of Ganesh Nepal’s year-long research project, while being HMK’s mentoring artist-in-residence. With this project, the artist aims to expose the hidden narratives of those continuously living through the experience of being treated as an outsider.

Building on the personal impact of finding himself in a place where he shares the same space but not the same right, Ganesh is reflecting on the notion of identity and the lack thereof when we find our bodies in foreign and hostile places – where we are treated with suspicion but forced to (re)build our identity after it has been diminished to none. Where do we find safety when shelters seem inaccessible? Metamorphosis envisions a metaphorical Larvae-state for all displaced bodies that need acceptance, opportunity and nourishment in order to grow and transform into their full potential.

Ganesh Nepal says: The project Metamorphosis shows the reality of how vulnerable we are, particularly when we find ourselves seemingly without a sense of self, without history and almost without the prospect of a better future. When your existence comes under a hammer of questions, requirements and paper trails, it becomes almost impossible to battle the demons that make your self-esteem crumble. Enslaved to exist in-between, it dampens your spirit, it stifles your being and it shackles your every dream. The frequency and intensity of the violent storms of rejection seem to be increasing; before getting in, I already feel evacuated.

The project culminates in the development of a specially developed passport and stamps for approval, presented in a performative installation at the heart of Hotel Maria Kapel – hinting at the places of administration, bureaucracy and paper trails that are so often part of this experience. Visitors are invited to take a passport, thus becoming citizens of the accepting State of Larvae. Accompanying Metamorphosis, Ganesh’s film Avatar (2021) will be shown with the installation. In the cinema of HMK, the film This Man Who Is Called Man (2019) further introduces the audience with Ganesh’s practice.
