Foresight & Fiction encourages us to see possibilities beyond our immediate reality. Here, postage stamps are a vehicle to explore the in-between. Using philately as a way to re-imagine collective narratives and psycho-geographical aspects of landscapes, both physical and emotional. Detouring away from stagnant ideas of nationhood and territory, Foresight & Fiction opens up ways of exploring the periphery, the imagined, and the possible, moving towards notions of hybridity in cultural heritage.
Together with philately, a new sound work will be presented. Sonically exploring what it means to be ‘in flux’ by interweaving field recordings, ephemeral sounds, and everyday life utterances; opening up possibilities that exist in liminal space and how we might relate to it, both individually and collectively.
