So far, the varied and interesting answers include:

Borough of Camden – an engineer hoping to be ‘home with his boyfriend and his dog’, someone happy to be ‘right here, right now’, or a solicitor ‘awash in a euphoria of reading and relaxation’

Borough of Lewisham , a man hoping to be ‘Shaking my tail feathers at Sydney Mardi Gras 2013’

Borough of Lambeth, a female digital storyteller hoping to be “In the middle of row C in the stalls at the Royal Opera House”

Borough of Hackney, a man hoping to be ‘among the English poets’, a woman ‘coccooned in a blanket of love with her partner for the rest of her life’

Borough of Waltham Forest, people mentioning Buckingham Palace, Miami, Lego shop, Canada or a Arsenal vs Tottenham match as their destination…

All 33 boroughs will be covered so please take part http://www.ltmuseum.co.uk/landofhopefulcommuters

Fellow Artists Fellow Muses exhibition

“Si je suis moi simplement parce que je suis moi, et si tu es toi simplement parce que tu es toi, alors je suis moi et tu es toi. Mais si je suis moi parce que tu es toi, et si tu es toi parce que je suis moi, alors je ne suis pas moi et tu n’es pas toi.”

Jean-Luc Bonniol quoting A. L. Epstein repeating Mendel de Kotzk

“If I am I merely because I am I, and if you are you merely because you are you, then I am I and you are you. However, if I am I because you are you, and if you are you because I am I, then I am not I and you are not you.”

The “Fellow Artists Fellow Muses” exhibition ran at King’s College Cambridge Art Centre from Friday 11th November until Saturday 26th November, open daily 11-5pm, free entry.

Agnes features as “Artist of the Week” on the Iniva Blog. http://www.iniva.org/blog/2011/11/artist-of-the-week-agnes-poitevin-navarre/



“Maps have the capacity to open worlds of reality and imagination” wrote Professor Jeremy Black in “Remarkable Maps – Examples of How Cartography Defined, Changed and Stole the World”. The art practice of Agnès Poitevin-Navarre epitomizes that idea. The exhibition at King’s College Arts Centre is a wonderful platform to explore and engage with this conceptual artist’s past and new body of work.

‘The Art of Being Anecdotal’ could be the subtitle of this exhibition that includes the ‘Colour Coding’ series, a speculative variation on mixed race terminology [In French, a mixed race person is sometime described as ‘café au lait’], ‘The Reader’ [photograph/photogram] and the magnificent ‘Fellow Artists, Fellow Muses’ installation that was shown last year at the Royal Geographical Society in London. That geo-biographical piece is a celebration of the career of eight fellow women artists [Agnès Poitevin-Navarre, Susan Stockwell, Nina Torp, Gayle Kwon Chang, Yara El Sherbini, Nicholette Goff, Rita Keegan, Cleo Broda].

The location of their shows is recorded as latitude and longitude coordinates and a keepsafe of their presence on this planet is embodied in the hair lock used instead of the bristle of a paintbrush.

This solo show also features new work such as ‘Le Fil D’Ariane [Cambridge]’, the artist hair embroidered floorplan of King’s College Cambridge as well as the newly commissioned ‘Proustian Map of Cambridge’, a collaboration with Cantabrigians that elaborates on the locals’ greatest achievements and pearls of wisdom.

Agnès Poitevin-Navarre is a conceptual artist interested in the limits of categorizations and semantics. She graduated with an MA from the Slade, UCL, in 1997 and has since been exhibiting locally, nationally and internationally. She works across a range of media but is known primarily for her cartographic and anecdotal work. She uses maps as a shorthand to explore notions of identity, nationality and social codes. She also composes collages and divises installations, giving them a poetic twist.
