LastCall (Art work)

LastCallLastCall An airport is a tract of levelland where aircrafts land and take off, usually equipped with hard-surfaced landing strips, a control tower, hangars, aircraft maintenance and refueling facilities, as well as accommodations for passengers and cargo. Airports are public and busy spaces, they are the most complex and dynamics station owed to the importance of the air traffic in our times. But an airport is much more than that. An airport is a conglomeration of all cultures, it is a place of floating bodies of people in limbo, a place where everyone is waiting to be somewhere else, it is a place of contradictions. It is a so called “No-Land”, where dead time seems constantly present. An airport is the ultimate waiting room. And yet, it is a center of contemporary culture, a place where identity is scrutinized thoroughly, and also shed like a snakeskin. We become anonymous and homogeneous. LASTCALL, is a personal project as well as an open project which was born as a reflection of many hours spent at airports waiting to fly out. Artists and non-artists have the opportunity to send their photos and opinions about the time spent at airports around the world. I invite them to reflect about the use of the new public spaces, to analyze by photo language how limitis between public and private space disappear in an airport terminal. LastCall was born on last 10th, July, 2010. It was born as a temporary which was going to finish last 7th, february, 2011, but a great public response, an individual exhibition in Ph´a´ke Bilbao: Ph'a'ke . photoartekomite, and other in Viewfinder Gallery in London in April. Last November, LastCall is scheduled to travel to Berlin to give us some inside into two airports, both of which near their disappearance: Tegel and Schönefeld.
