startling and breathtaking

The Alexia Goethe Gallery is proud to present the first London solo exhibition of artist and i-genius member Sara Haq this Friday 16th. The Overland Project is a photographic and filmic installation of works made during a research expedition that was a journey overland from London to Phuket, Thailand, in February and March 2008 to attend the i-genius world summit and give a presentation on her work and journey.

It’s an opportunity to see a month’s worth of overland travel, from the UK to Thailand, through the eyes of an exceptional artist and photographer. A journey that will take you through hundreds of towns and cities between two countries, using trains, buses and boats. A large part of the trip was taken on the Trans-Mongolian Express between Moscow and Beijing, revealing startling, and often bleak but stunning, landscapes.

The unusual catalogue for this exhibition which includes texts by Richard Dyer (Contemporary Magazine) and John Bird (founder of The Big Issue) doubles as a learning resource exploring subjects ranging from immigration, migration, work, play, intercultural communication to the idea of the artist as entrepreneur.

Show open: Friday 16 January – Tuesday 20 February 2009 (Mon – Fri 10am – 6pm / Sat 11am – 4pm)
