Iniva presents the first interactive digital exhibition at Rivington Place.

Liminal: A Question of Position

11 March – 25 April

Rivington Place will be transformed into a contemporary urban playground inviting visitors to position themselves in relation to migration and dislocation, both physically and culturally.

Over 20 artists will come together to investigate, through digital media, what it means to live in a city – the urban hub where culture, society and beliefs collide.

The works include:

•Phillippe Chollet & Che-Guevara John, Frictions of Distance - a time and space defying installation allowing people in London and Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to simultaneously walk in each others footsteps.

•Disinformation and Usurp, London Underground – a kinetic work inspired by recordings of magnetic field interference on rapid transport systems.

•Luke Hastilow, Elaine Thomazi-Freitas and Alexander Wendt, [wɔ:l bɔ:l] – A playful interactive wall installation that incorporates the quest for cultural identity and position.

•Roshini Kempadoo, Ghosting – a game playing device that reflects on the interconnections between cultures, past and present.

•Rob Rainbow & Patrick Rhoden, Total Station – a proximity detecting installation where Rivington Place becomes an optical instrument through which the wider city can be seen.

•Olivier Ruellet, Ferro Scape - an experimental video and animation piece focusing on urban travel, architecture in motion and displacement.

•The INIvators with Larry Achiampong and Chris Lane, Step into our World- a projection of re-configured imagery collected from a multitude of sources exploring the ephemeral nature of the image in contemporary society.

The exhibition is accompanied by a dynamic public programme of workshops, presentations, performances and events presented on Thursdays and Saturdays by the participating artists. Please check the Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) website for up to date information
