Relational Geographies

Relational Geographies Exhibition Title

13 Jul - 18 Oct 2015

Relational Geographies brings together emerging and established UAL artists whose work explores relationships between measurement, movement, distance, and time.
Drawing on Brandon LaBelle’s definition of sound as creating ‘a relational geography that is most often emotional, contentious, fluid, and which stimulates a form of knowledge that moves in and out of the body’ (Acoustic Territories: Sound Culture & Everyday Life, 2010), the exhibition takes the visitor on an intimate and poetic journey through inner and outer spaces.
Ultimately it becomes a space where to rethink and understand the relationship between us and our environment.
 
Curated by Camilla Palestra.
 
Artists
Lucie Beauvert, Layla Curtis, Karel Doing, Sylvia Law, Susan Leen, Hanae Utamura
