The installation works, Mirror IV : Legacy and Mirror III : Horizon will be shown as part of the event, Alternate Languages at the Royal Academy.
Audiences are invited to explore the public and private spaces of the RA with installations, performances, workshops, and discussions that ask what unites us and divides us.
The event provided a critique of our relationship with one another and with our spaces. Through free immersive spatial activations, artworks, performances, workshops, and discussions in the Royal Academy, the curator, Kate Goodwin, delivered a programme exploring isolation and connection, exclusion and generosity, in order to ask what unites us and divides us.
As disenchantment permeates many aspects of society and polarisation increases, the exhibition sought to transcend differences, overcome prejudices, find ways to understand, and ways to connect with, one another.
This event was the third in a series by the same name, which was first initiated with the British Council to occupy the empty space of the British Pavilion, for Island, at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. Throughout this event, the hope was to expand the languages we have available to express and share ideas, and to create an opportunity for different voices to be heard.
