The Monstrous Arrivant at Kanto artist-run space

On Wednesday March 13, from 8PM onwards, join us for the opening of Jong Pairez solo exhibition The Monstrous Arrivant

Annotated Bibliography for the exhibition:
In Derrida’s radicalized notion the arrivant is affirmed as an “absolute alterity,” meaning that the absolute must be permanently absent. The removal of the notion of absolute (the religious motif) is made up for, or supplemented, by the notion of “absolutely undetermined” event (the unpredictability of the future). In other words, those aspects of the future that are not yet determined (such that decisions as well as accidents and chances become possible) must be the result of an absolutely undetermined aspect, which Derrida here calls “an alterity that cannot be anticipated.”

Phillips, John (unknown date). Jacques Derrida on the Messianic Principle: The Eschatological Relation. Retrieved February 23, 2013

Derrida describes 'the monstrous arrivant', which is 'absolutely foreign or strange' but must be welcomed and accorded hospitality, in order to be open to the future, as that which arrives, beyond what we know, expect or programmed for.
