Transcrossing Identities – NeeNee Collective

Do you dream being a butterfly or are you a butterfly dreaming to be a human being? This metaphor from an ancient poem by Chinese philosopher Zhuang Zhou, about the transition between sleeping and awakening – living in different worlds, cultures and identities – was the inspiration for NeeNee’s exhibition in Kazerne. The Dutch-based collective of young transcultural Asian artists and designers presents the perspectives of twelve promising talents, all working from a world where culture is no longer bound by location, a world where traditional horizontal and vertical patterns of thinking are crossed by a variable and unrestricted reality. In the exhibition ‘Trans-crossing Identities’, they reflect on the hybrid being; on the intersection of metamorphosis, interaction, connections and differences in gender and ethnicity. NeeNee Collective invites you to step aside from the here-and-now and immerse yourself into their surrealistic dreamworld.
