"Here We Are, Who Cares?" implies a variety of readings. It is at once breezily flippant and a shrug of indifference at the world's follies and clashes. Subtly sarcastic, this is an ironic announcement of a group of artists whose work ranges from absurd humor to profound pathos. Rooted in accumulated narratives, migratory paths and fragmented evidence alluding to collective memory, "Here We Are Who Cares?" permits viewers to inhabit several little universes, where things belong to no one and, paradoxically, everyone.
