The Plantation Journal is pleased to invite you to the first chapter of a new curatorial series curated by Trine Stephensen. 'A Corner With' intends to highlight one artists' practice each month, through an exhibition of work created in the space in the month leading up to the opening.
The audience are introduced to floor plan sketches by the artists before the show begins, as they explore the site-specific qualities and possibilities of their work in relation to the space given. The same space each time, interpreted in an endless number of ways. In each case, these sketches will be collected later into a publication together with the final installation images. The first artist partaking in the series is Emma Bäcklund. We hope to see you during that weekend!

Roman Road & The Plantation Journal is pleased to invite you to the book launch of:
a collaborative publication between
Mia Dudek and Alix Marie
Edited by Trine Stephensen / The Plantation Journal
MDAM is a collaboration between The Plantation Journal and artists Mia Dudek and Alix Marie made on the occasion of their eponymous exhibition at Roman Road. This new publication takes a compelling look at the artists' experimental approaches to photography and sculpture. While their current exhibition gathers installations and more sculpture-based works, the MDAM book is a playful puzzle that brings together their photographic practices exploring bodily matters.
The Plantation Journal is an art initiative and project space, run by Trine Stephensen, showcasing explorations within the curatorial and photographic fields in the contemporary arts through exhibitions, workshops, events and publications. It presents a carefully curated selection of photographic works related to sculptural photography. MDAM is exploring the format of an exhibition catalogue, introducing work that is not necessarily seen in the show, but that has been essential for the creation of the exhibition at Roman Road.
Book Launch: Saturday 13 May 2017, 2pm - 6pm
