Haven’t we left behind something that is fundamentally important? Have we moved on without realising it, or simply left it behind, while knowing all along? This year’s triennale is a voyage into the sea of oblivion. It makes us recall things that have been inadvertently lost from our lives, things perpetually forgotten, and in particular, things that have been lost in contemporary times. Let us wander, feel perplexed, become inspired, broaden our imaginations, and stop and contemplate. Comprised of two introductions and a total of 11 chapters, the triennale provides us with an opportunity to compile a journal about a drifting mind.
