The Baasher Ghor/ Bamboo House projects will be shown as part of the Stephen Lawrence Gallery‘s programme for the coming year.
This latest group exhibition runs from 21st January – 28th February 2013, will present research and archive gathered over the last year, with a focus on incubating ideas in the form of new artists and designers collaborations within the gallery space.
Curated by Saif Osmani
An international research-based exhibition looking at the multiple ways in which bamboo has been abbreviated in a context of space, in place-making and within the process of establishing national boundaries. Each project explores cross-cultural interaction and linkages forged through material and spatial syntax, in the formation of cultural codes and future identities across borderlines.
Parallel Horizons stems from Baasher Ghor/ Bamboo House, an on-going collaborative platform which brings together 35 practitioners from four continents, including architects, artists, designers, sculptors, photographers and oral historians, with the aim of rediscovering stories and narratives misplaced through human migration and interpolation.
A talk and seminar will be scheduled during the exhibition.
