At a distance – from within draws from the allegory of the seed as an entity that creates a sense of rhizomatic placemaking. This relational form of placemaking refers then to the flourishing of communities, practices, and exchanges that come from diverse and multiple diasporas. The exhibition explores the concept of diaspora through the use of texts by diasporic Caribbean writers, such as Stuart Hall, and Édouard Glissant, among others.
