Fast-moving forward in the fantasy of the past. We have lost our sense of place. Confronted with the illusion of time, deep inside the sensation of always wanting more.

In a system of cycles, we try to find a sense of real in our present. But there is no real, reality is just a space of illusions that people can agree on, until the next cycle begins.

In this space, we produce. We produce this space.

In a cycle, where presenting cultural expectation rootlessly attaches us to ourselves, we find ourselves understanding a logic we cannot feel. We are grounded in a wealth of unknowns – economized – made known.

The Salamander Devours its Tail Twice brings together twenty-eight artists figuring out what it means to be human.

Each artist oscillates between self-understanding and cultural expectation. Located somewhere in the middle, they create an extension of themselves, a mirror from which they may better understand their position in the present, relation to the past, and anxieties around the future.
