With Intersection, Marc and Nicola create an artistic map of exploring geographies, names, stories and histories in London, Singapore and Yangon.
While London and Singapore are Nicola and Marc’s home territories respectively, Yangon is a new space to both. Through this process of triangulation, the exhibition gives its audience an intimate glimpse into these locations.
Marc Nair's poems organically bloom in everyday objects, which are displaced by Nicola to enter into the art realm.
An artist book, based on the exhibition , is also part of the show and printed as a limited edition risograph, a technique resulting in exquisite pages with the feel of handmade screen prints.
By pairing neighbourhoods in their home cities, London and Singapore, and in a completely strange city, Yangon, Marc and Nicola strive to express the secret links which bind personal and national stories. Ultimately they show how a universal dimension exists in any personal experience, transcending time and space.
