Daily Migrations - curated by 'without appeal', 01-07 Oct 2018
For their presentation of the Arts Territory Exchange archive @artsterritoryexchange, the collective installed and photographed work throughout an industrial space underneath one of the iconic train arches in Hackney, East London. Images from the ATE Views project and documentation from particpant exchanges are juxtaposed with materials and machinery sourced from throughout the world and used in the production of coffee. As a site of transition, stock is constantly flowing in and out of the factory, present only briefly before being sent out again. At this transitional moment for many, a reflection on how fleeting these interactions can be feels fitting.

Different stages of remains/structures floating on the surface of the water
lost at sea.
There is a certain vulnerability in being adrift, uncertain of borders or location. Searching for familiar images or visual confirmation of our physical presence, 'somewhere' often blurs into 'elsewhere.'
The insignificance of distance outside observation.
Gaze places afar.
