Alternate Languages

March 16, 2019 - March 24, 2019
Mirror Projects exhibited within the Alternate Languages exhibition at the Royal Academy.

Context

Works were exhibited within the Alternate Languages exhibition at the McAuley Gallery (Mirror III) & The Weston Gallery (Mirror IV). Royal Academy, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BD

1/2 Mirror III installed within Alternate Languages at the Royal Academy
2/2 Mirror IV installed within Alternate Languages at the Royal Academy

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 provides a critique of our relationship with one another and with our spaces. In a day of free immersive spatial activations, artworks, performances, workshops, and discussions in the Royal Academy, we explore isolation and connection, exclusion and generosity, and ask what unites us and divides us.

As disenchantment permeates many aspects of society and polarisation increases, we must transcend differences, overcome prejudices, find ways to understand and connect with one another.

This event is 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, we hope to expand the languages we have available to express and share ideas, and to create an opportunity for different voices to be heard.
