Solo exhibition by Davide Hjort Di Fabio, MA Medium and Material-based Art.
Liminal gravity unfolds the life of a satellite and question its purpose, from the moment it gets launched into outer space, until it dies and gets sent to a space graveyard.
What if this humanmade machine not only monitored our planet and the universe, but actually zoomed in on our human lives and caught us in an intimate moment? Would it feel desire, longing, nostalgia?
A satellite maintains its orbit by the perfect yet fragile balance of its velocity and the gravitational pull that Earth has on it. This liminal energy between them, barely perceptible, but strong enough to produce a response, is always on the boundary of a change.
How do we feel when observed by someone who understands us better than we do ourselves?
