Sfeir-Semler Gallery | The Shortest Distance Between Two Points | An exhibition by Rayyane Tabet
4 April - 20 July 2013 Elsewhere & around | Exhibition
The Shortest Distance Between Two Points is a line. A line is a construction of distance - in space, in time, in vision. It gives definition to form and position through connection and separation. The Trans-Arabian Pipe Line Company was established in 1946 as a joint venture between Caltex, Esso, and Mobil. TAPLine was formed to build and operate a 1213 kilometer long 78 centimeter wide steel tube to transport oil through land. With this endeavor the company described three intersecting lines - an arc of history, geography, and geometry.

Here, the landscape is treated as an expanded state of consciousness, often beyond or beneath language. It can be perceived as a readjustment of the sensorial experience, shifted from any discursive thought, hence "recognized" as an archetype of sorts, a primal recognition sensation.
