The Space In Between




“Liminality is derived from ‘limen’, meaning threshold. The concept of the ‘liminal space’ as introduced 
by anthropologist Victor Turner, suggests the idea of ambiguity and ambivalence. This in-between space 
should allow active exchanges of ideologies, concepts and methods of working. There is an indication of 
a transition from one state or space to another, an on-going search for answers, yet the end point might 
not or need not be defined. Therefore, the ‘liminal space’ might be read as a metaphorical realm where 
ideas and concepts: artistic, political, cultural, social or otherwise, are in constant states of contestation and 
negotiation.”
