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 his vision on the theme and develop artworks in the direction he / she wants.

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.
