Destination Anywhere at Rugby Station
During March 2016 KIT which included Ije Carr and Karina Cabanikova and me, worked on Destination Anywhere, East or West We Don't Care. This exhibition considered the juxtaposition between a functioning station with inhabited waiting rooms surrounding and adjoining a defunct waiting room, now purposeless, used only for lost property.
The majority of people using the station and waiting rooms have specific destinations and purpose attached to their journey, they are in transit, speeding up and slowing down, syncopated to the rhythm of the train schedule, ever moving with short periods of suspension. In this time of post modernity, new media, simultaneity and globalization we explored the concept & consequences of being destinationless - travelling, migrating, loitering with no intent, marking time, journeying, irrespective of gender or socio-political expectations.
The show took place at The Old Waiting Room, Platform 2/4, Rugby Station, 24/3 - 7/4 2016. Supported by Warwickshire Open Studios and Virgin Railway. www.warwickshireopenstudios.org
