about the work
Following the long journey through Sydney and Glasgow, Nomanslanding drops anchor in Duisburg’s former railroad harbor. In Europe’s largest inland harbor, the installation addresses the everyday process of arrival and departure here, of ongoing exchange. Nomanslanding is accessible via ramps from the opposite banks; it calls upon visitors to transgress boundaries, to leave the ground that seems so stable beneath their feet. Out on the water, the borderline between what is one’s own and what is foreign begins to blur.
