or unlimited desire

An artist's reflection on the permanent exhibition "Expeditions"

What kinds of desires are embodied in objects? And how do these desires differ in objects made for a consumer market and objects made within other types of economies? The exhibition "Semiwild – or unlimited desire" is made up of six chapters where the artist Ania Soliman asks these questions in different ways by confronting and arranging artefacts from the museum's collection with her own artwork. The viewer is taken along an unexpected journey and experiences the emotional economies of possession and desire by looking at how objects are made, used, exchanged and discarded.
