Genetic Landscape Exhibition 4th Aug to 13th Aug 2020

Genetic Landscape exhibition is an expansion of concepts and ideas from our zine publication. Our zine contributors were invited to expand upon their investigation of Genetic Landscape into the physical space of Substation. Hence the exhibition will present largely newly developed art works – expansion from their works in the zine. Artists Caravan’s journerys aspire towards moments where dots connect and the gestalt are revealed. Similarly with Genetic Landscape, we want to expand the conversation of land and human to include perspective and stories from the eyes of its people, especially from the arts and cultural community.

Genetic Landscape Zine E-Launch x Unboxing

Genetic Landscape is an independent full-coloured zine publication organized, edited and publish by Artists Caravan (AC), featuring 4 members from AC and 9 collaborators from our very own arts village. We chose the zine as an environment for this initiative primarily for the roots and spirit that zines embody.
Genetic Landscape Issue 01’s theme engaged our collaborators to explore and exchange ideas – to propose solutions to rethink, reinvent and recover the social and cultural aspect of land and bodies.
