Many rivers to cross
There to here to there

From there to here to there
As part of the Totally Thames festival 2022, Riverside Artists Group presented the exhibition – Many Rivers to Cross – in Riverside Studios, Hammersmith, London. Each artist collaborated with another, ranging from visual media to performance and poetry, to create new work especially for the exhibition.
I once again collaborated with Francesca Giuliano and we interpreted the theme as follows: we’ve all crossed many rivers – physical and metaphorical – to get to the here and now. Some were before our time, some on our behalf, and some are still to cross. Supported by CityLit, London, 200 participants answered four questions: Where do you live? Where were you born? Where are your ancestors from? Where would you like to be? The work comprises 54 monoprints curated around six emergent themes.
