A COLLECTIVE INSTALLATION PROJECT


The People Who Came From The Sea



Galvin Harrison + T.N.G (The Next Generation) is a collective installation project. It is a community based project initiated by Galvin Harrison in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen with the objective of changing and improving the lives and futures of  local young men who are of Middle Eastern origin. One of the underlying and problematic issues that resides within all young men that have inherited the social and stigmatic DNA of the indigenous Middle Eastern migrant is that of personal identity. The major source of conflict that resides within the individual persona is one of culture and the basic essence of understanding and belonging. The contemporary culture of the Middle East is confronted on a daily basis with a veritable negative onslaught by all manner of social media and political discourse. The vital and inspirational contribution in the form of science, language and historical achievements are lost, or in the process of being erased within the quagmire of violent rhetoric, militaristic slaughter on a grand scale and genocidal displacements of resident populations. This burden of perpetual conflict has without any doubt left its mark and psychological scars on the majority of the young generation with roots and parentage deriving from the Middle East and who attempt on a daily basis to find a foot fast form of social existence and acceptance within the parameters of an ever burgeoning and divisive parallel society. The primary inspiration for the installation project requires the researching and profiling of a selected number of prominent Arabic scholars. The objective is to relate the construction of the individual sculptures that will form the sum of parts of a larger and cohesive installation inspired by individual Arabic achievements that have played an integral role in influencing, forming and shaping our contemporary society. It is with the hope and the  firm conviction that the forming of Galvin Harrison + T.N.G with its initial inspirational source researched and extracted from the very best that the Middle East has contributed to global contemporary society  will travel some of the required distance in instilling a fundamental sense of understanding, pride and profound self awareness in all of the participating contributors to the project.
