Liminal: etymology “limes” (Latin) meaning threshold. The word liminal is used in connection with: (1) a transition period or the initial stage of a process, (2) that something occupies a position, or both sides of a border or threshold.


Liminal condition can be described as a place where we are open to anything; where we leave the “ordinary” and allows something else to occur. The transition can be described as passing a threshold or break through a membrane. The shift may be perceived as intimidating as the need for control is suspended, but at the same time a possibility for change and renewal. The liminal in-between space is characterized by openness, active listening and adherence to things that occur. How does a liminal place feel; where can you find it, and what does it look like? In the project “Liminal” the participants gives their vision on the theme. Art can open doors and let us enter places in new ways, not available before.


The project is part of “Being In The World,” an international and interdisciplinary practice-based art project that explores temporal and spatial perception. The idea is that participants work together to come closer to the topic, get together, discuss it and make new works.
