AboutThe Investigation Series presents its sophomore show, One to One: Charting the Personal Terrain about the cartography of the interior world. The exhibition showcases a cross-disciplinary collection of work from 11 emerging artists from different backgrounds, as well as a curated list of events set to happen over the weekend, making it a âlive' exhibition.
One to One takes for its name a short story, On Exactitude in Science, by Jorge Luis Borges, about cartography and representation of a terrain. In the story Borges imagines a country where the science of cartography has become so exact that only a map was made at a 1:1 scale, later falling into disuse. One to One refers not only to the scale of such a map and its impossibility, but also to personal encounters, meeting one-to-one.
The artists draw on music, dance, psychology, film and story-telling to create work that is transcendental and intimate. The multiple narratives paint a landscape from which anyone could find a story of their own. An entire weekend packed full with events that are fascinating, enjoyable and accessible promises an extra dimension to the work in the show.
Set at East London art gallery The Rag Factory, the exhibition is accessible easily via public transport and situates itself in an area well known for pushing the boundaries and challenging existing notions in contemporary art.
