PLACE: Relinking, Relating, Relaying took place in January 2018 at The Ruskin Gallery and Gallery 9, Cambridge and brought together artists from Italy, Slovenia and Bosnia Hercegovina to respond to our chosen themes of boundaries and borders, belonging and connection, relations and exchanges – themes to which artists from Cambridge and beyond were also invited to respond.

The result was an intriguing and energising array of work that felt somehow bound together despite our different cultural backgrounds. There was a serendipity to the range of responses. From painting (Barbara Stefani, Adriana Torregrossa, Neil Horsefield), drawing (Maja Rubinic, Dalibor Nikolic) and video (Radio Fragola Gorizia, Susi Gutierrez) to sound (Andreja Dzakusic), performance (Veronique Chance, Simon Macuh) and installation (Nerma Cridge), the mix of media seemed to emphasise the breadth of alternative perspectives, narratives and reference points on display.

A particular favourite for many people was the Skype Meal, hosted remotely by Simon Macuh from Celje, Slovenia during our Private View, who joined us across the ether from his own home-made gallery just for the evening. Thank you Simon!
