Exhibition open
Tuesday 27 September - Friday 21 October

This exhibition will explore the latent architectural qualities in the idea of the 'island'. The participating artists and architects were asked to examine the text of Lucian of Samosata's 'True Stories' and the surreal islands described in the voyage. The artists have brought the thematics of these texts into contemporary experience, exploring the idea that islands may represent both symptoms and solutions to the experience of isolation.
