Inter-Scape - Mnemonic City
Inter-Scape is the latest in a series of exhibitions by MAGMA under the project title “Mnemonic City”. Mnemonic City embodies the experience of the city through the exchange of personal memories by the artists, exploring the idea of the city as a receptacle, taking inspiration from Plato’s Myth of the Cave. The allegory explores the relation of humans with their environment, questioning what is real and what appearance is.
After the focus on the market place in ‘Moving Streets’, the group’s previous exhibition, Magma Collective moves outward with Inter-Scape to the geographical margin of the city, zooming out after zooming in.
The event will start at 2pm on the 21st of September by the canal outside Tottenham Hale Tube station and will run north along the canal through Tottenham Marshes up to Building Bloqs, with performances, installations and other interventions on the way. The journey will lead to Building Bloqs, the main venue, which is located in Edmonton. Maps, including times of screenings and performances will be provided for each member of the audience to be guided through this gateway between countryside and city, where things are left unresolved and where remnants of nature collide with remains of industry. Behind this itinerary lies the idea of a creative and collaborative re-mapping of the metropolis.
Part of the event will be a collaboration with the art group Tellus Project, based in Milan, Italy. This double bill event will connect the cities of Milan and London through a live stream, where the artists and audience will be able to exchange and share projects and ideas.
Throughout the day, food and drinks will be available from the Bloqs Cafe, and in the evening there will be live music in the Cafe area.
