Opposite Tendencies

16 Nicholson Street presents a group exhibition of photography and video works by Mads Holm, Scott Caruth and Alice Myers exploring the themes of urban and personal space. The exhibition was accompanied by a series of events and a text by Adam Benmakhlouf.

"We might say that throughout the centuries two opposite tendencies have competed in literature: one tries to make language into a weightless element that hovers above things like a cloud or better, perhaps, the finest dust or, better still, a field of magnetic impulses. The other tries to give language the weight, density, and concreteness of things, bodies, and sensations.” - Italo Calvino, Lightness
