Intersection is an artistic map, exploring geographies, names, stories and histories in three
cities around the world. The work investigates collisions of place and meaning in spaces that contain overlapping consistencies; whether it is the vestiges of colonial influence, the
relentless march of capitalism, or the stubborn refusal of history to disappear.

Inside these poetic and visual microcosms, contours, fractures of memory and culture cross each other at critical and casual junctions of thought, creating new ways of looking at our inter-connected cities.

The project revolves around London and Singapore, Nicola and Marc’s home territories
respectively, and a third city, Yangon, which is a new space to both. Through this process of triangulation, the Intersection exhibition gives its audience an intimate glimpse into these locations. The artists have journeyed to each of the three nodes, and now the resulting artwork and published book is also touring these three places.

The exhibition will take place 23 March - 8th April 2018, with an Opening Reception on 23 March and Art Talks, Workshops and Readings on 24 & 25 March, 2018.
