The exhibition includes Biinjiya’iing Onji (From Inside), a sculpture that was made for Documenta 14. The tent was carved from marble quarried from the mountain range that was used to build the Parthenon. From inside the tent, which was installed on Filopappou Hill, you had a view of this architectural wonder. The tent migrated to Kassel, Germany, via truck, and was installed facing south, looking back at where it had come from. So many people who land in Greece as refugees have a desire to live in Germany. Now, the tent has made its way to this continent crossing the ocean by ship. As an Indigenous person, going to the place purported to be the birthplace of democracy, commissioning a tent made of marble, and bringing it home, is a reversal, if you remember that Europeans came and ravaged the land here and took it all back to their own lands. This marble, removed and transformed, is a symbolic offering: of being inside the stone of another place.
