Memory and Movement

Urbiquity

03 Nov 2016 to 13 Nov 2016
 
Memory and Movement exhibits the work of Urbiquity, a platform for urbanism founded by Stefano Carnelli, Pablo Conejo and Mattias Malk. The exhibition consists of two sections showcasing long-term projects as well as the results of a visual urbanism residency curated by Urbiquity on the same subject.
The first section consists of three separate, yet interlinked works by the founders of Urbiquity. These long-term projects investigate processes of political and/or economic migration, connecting global processes and personal experience. Pablo Conejo’s project “What remains” investigates the idiosyncratic processes of rural depopulation in Spanish villages. In “Hiraeth”, Mattias Malk opens up the Bosnian war by contrasting intimate family archives with contemporary photos of the villages emptied by the war. In “Transumanza” Stefano Carnelli follows shepherds in Northern Italy across pastoral scenes deeply convoluted by unexpected, contemporary, globalising tendencies.
The second section showcases work produced during a week-long visual urbanism residency curated by Urbiquity. The Urbiquity Urban Lab involved 8 international artists working around the theme Memory and Movement in Tallinn, Estonia.
 
About the Artist:
Urbiquity is a platform for creative and critical urbanism. Using visual methods alongside text and materiality, Urbiquity aims to investigate sociality in the built environment and generate new knowledge of the ways we inhabit increasingly multilayered, contextual and connected global localities.
Urbiquity aims to relate to seemingly imperceptible processes that are either too distant or too close to grasp without conscious study.Urbiquity is based in London, Madrid and Tallinn, but operates internationally. Urbiquity was founded by Stefano Carnelli, Pablo Conejo and Mattias Malk.
