Parallel Horizons

A multi-disciplinary showcase examining how bamboo has been appropriated in a context of space, in place-making and within the process of establishing national boundaries. Each project explores cross-cultural interaction and linkages forged through material and spatial syntax in the formation of cultural codes and future identities across borderlines.

Parallel Horizons stems from Baasher Ghor/ Bamboo House, an international collaborative platform bringing together 35 practitioners from four continents including architects, artists, designers, sculptors, photographers and oral historians with the aim of rediscovering stories and narratives misplaced through human migration and interpolation.

List of participating artists and collaborators:

Muhammed Ahmedullah, Victor Angelo, Lee Borthwick, Wang Wen-Chih, Hilde A. Danielsen, Lee Dalby, Marcus Fearon, Steven Follen, Benjamin Garcia Saxe, Atar Hadari, Anna Heringer, Lisa Hudson, Fatima Hussain, Zahra Hussain, Samiul Kamal-Uddin, Faridha A. Karim, Ruhimunnessa Khanom Karim, Asif Khan, Zia-Uddin Khan, Julia King, Hsinyi Ku, Peter Kyte, Rebecca Lucraft, Akinori Matsumoto, Rosa Nguyen, Saif Osmani, Larisa Sarajlija, Sba Shaikh, Julia Thompson, Chris Wright, Maria Zerguine
