LONDON. Cristina Mejías, Christian Lagata, Fuentesal&Arenillas and Esther Gatón “Where Water Rumbles, Metallised” 19 march – 26 april 2020. Scan Projects + Intersticio gallery.

This exhibition initiates an exciting collaboration between SCAN + INTERSTICIO at a new facility on 469 Bethnal Green Rd. This new space offers larger and more flexible exhibition rooms close to transport – Bethnal Green tube – and conveniently situated between the Herald Street and Vyner Street gallery areas of East London. Our new spaces will be shared in rotation and the partnership aims to explore new curatorial synergies between the two projects as well as a more sustainable model for contemporary art projects in London.

‘Where Water Rumbles, Metallised’ explores pathways of interpretation and intuition, adaptation and response. The project does not pursue a specific form, but rather plurality and drift. Objects (from daily life) and art works are assembled or arranged with the intention of provoking friction between them, of dissolving their initial
meaning and triggering a new set of ideas without a preconceived binding principle.A composition, a sketch or an idea can give rise to a dialogue that enriches the content and initiates the next step.
