an exhibition about locating and location

The Puluwat islanders in the Pacific ocean use the principal of Etak when travelling between islands. They do not use maps or think of distance in miles nor do they imagine themselves as even moving while travelling. Rather they use a highly abstract, complex and creative cognitive map to travel from one point to another.

Using Etak as inspiration four artists locate Elastic residence.

Nothing to Declare
Rebecca Feiner explores cycles of displacement through ethnicity, culture, religious and political waves of immigration to the East End streets of London.

Jon Fawcett presents the first complete work in his entities series; a large, non-physical object that passes through the gallery.

Layers of Ambivalence
Deej Fabyc performs a lecture about mapping ambivalence and also performs a series of painted drawings based on maps of Whitechapel from the sixteenth century until the present.

East End Aussie

Joanna Callaghan navigates geographical points that surround the gallery via personal history and emotional indicators.
‘Since arriving in London in 1997 I have lived, loved and lost within a one mile radius of this gallery. This is a map of how I came to be here and the things that happened.’


East End Aussie, Joanna Callaghan
