En-Counter: Stories of London at The Barbican

  • Max Cocking

En-Counter was asked to curate an interactive installation for the young Barbican members to celebrate the launch of the Modern Couples exhibition. The installation explored their experiences, connections with others, the impactful yet fleeting moments vs long term relationships they had built and the influence that had on their art and their lives. The interactive installation was split into three different narrative building sections, built throughout the launch event in the iconic Barbican conservatory. The installations aim was to allow the young Barbican members to stop and witness the moments which shape us and the people that leave lasting impressions on us, however long they were in our lives. Proving the magic of collaboration, encouraging young people to question what is a real connection and asking us to pause, reflect and remember those meaningful interactions.
