The Zone is the 17th exhibition by The Tunnel, the exhibition focuses on the spiritual, philosophical and intellectual backlash to late capitalism’s effect on the environment.
The title ‘The Zone’ comes from Andrei Tarkovsky’s film Stalker (1979).
“Let everything that’s been planned come true. Let them believe. And let them have a laugh at their passions. Because what they call passion is not some emotional energy, but the friction between their souls and the outside world. And most important, let them believe in themselves. Let them be helpless like children, because weakness is a great thing, and strength is nothing. When a man is born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies he is hard and insensitive. When a tree is growing it is tender and pliant. But when it is dry and hard it dies. Hardness and strength are death companions. Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being. Because what has hardened, will never win.”
– Andrei Tarkovsky
