Although surrounded by a haphazard and transforming urban landscape, Hackney Wick provides a space or a vacuum within which artists can dream, invent and produce. For ‘Wonder Island' artists have been asked to relate Hackney wick to the idea of a utopian island existing within dystopian surroundings and approach the theme in multiple ways. The outcome shows a plurality of responses that deal with architecture, history and storytelling. An ambigious mix of fact and fiction transforms the gallery into a space where information is processed, transformed and finally acts as a springboard for the viewer's imagination. Curated by Emi Avora and Patrick Michalopoulos
