AboutA multi-disciplinary showcase examining how bamboo has been appropriated 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 international collaborative platform bringing 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 workshops will be held during February 2013 to accompany the exhibition. For up-to-date information and booking details please go to the gallery web pages.
