Black River is an on-going crowdsourced artwork, created by Pablo Valcarce and Anya Gleizer. The black river, as seen above, is simultaneously projected in the exhibition space, covering all the walls.  It passes around the room in a circle, weaving together seven Japanese scrolls.

 

The  black river speaks of memory and place and it is open to anyone. Any person can share a place that holds meaning or importance for them by uploading a photograph, artwork or video in the upload-window on the left. Their artwork will appear in the black river for a moment within the random sequence and disappear again - a swift passing like a memory.

 

Black River is a reflection on the places each of us inhabits, and on the different way we experience and express our relationship to these spaces.
