“When philosophy paints its grey in grey, one form of life has become old, and by means of grey it cannot be rejuvenated, but only known.
The owl of Minerva takes its flight only when the shades of night are gathering.”

The global pandemic that changed every section of the world in March 2020 also left a strong change on our annual project, Moving Trailer. Somehow, ironically enough, many many of our members moved to other countries, other cities & other provinces during the pandemic. Moving Trailer isn’t since allowed to bring artworks to public crowds of the audience and artist peers but only moved our individual household items to new settlement. 

Therefrom, Moving Box was born as an alternative itinerary derived from Moving Trailer. Instead of gathering together ain front of a rental truck, Moving Box ignited its journey by physically visiting our artist friends who have spread worldwide in light of keeping the friendship and alliance-ship together nonetheless. A participant member puts their personal items in a generic cardboard box and mails it to the next participant no matter where the person lives. The box has now journeyed over four countries, six cities across the globe. The more the surface of the box has gotten worn off, ripped off, the more items that wish to reach out to each other have been accumulated. Nonetheless, the shared moment well preserved in the box has gone through the delivery system upon costs at different currencies as well as numerous delays due to the pandemic. How the Box has evolved along with how the life with the pandemic has dissolved into our everyday life might be the exact representation of how we have kept ourselves strong by friendly attachments and sharing personal moments online or by mails during several lockdowns. Thereby,  we, Quite Ourselves, acknowledge that friendship is privileged yet enriched by any means.

The box has now settled back in Montreal, where the first mail began in October 2020.
