Parallel Borders/ Monument & Shrines to Capitalism
parallel borders is an itinerant, interdisciplinary research project created as an artist / curatorial partnership between mark mangion and malta contemporary art. a series of year-long collaborations was initiated in 2012, generating a discourse with a diversity of artists and practitioners from other fields invited to contribute to an explorative platform of site-specific fieldwork in various regions around the world, questioning ideas of cross-field dialogue through visual culture. a global journey will be embarked upon, creating a foundation for historical study and anthropological mapping, storytelling and geo-political cultural examination against a backdrop of a deflating capitalism, environmental instability, technological revolution and ideas and disputes of borders; physical, territorial, scientific, philosophical.
monuments & shrines to capitalism (2012) is a an artist-curatorial collaboration with 8 artists in 8 cities in europe at the end of 2012. this cross-border project questions ideas of consumption and power, protest and awakening, pilgrimage and fracture, architecture, monument and shrine reflecting a decay in western culture propelled by an addiction to capitalism.
commencing in athens, a collaborative journey to reykjavik via stops in many of the most significant cultural, political, historical and financial cities of europe was embarked upon marking a cacophonous and politically engaged fault line from south east to north west europe.
questioning capitalist monoliths, a series of one-day projects were created engaging with public spaces and architecture. working with deliberately low production values in various media, these public interventions sought contrasting interactions with various elements of these cities resulting in a temporal destabilization of an urban fabric and community.
returning to the city where it began, this collective project is recontextualised within an abandoned athens apartment.
