Turner Contemporary, Margate, Kent
Giant wall drawing, fanzine
Etagram is Margate backwards, Etagram exists in parallel to Margate, it is an elastic place. It sits as a transparent layer above or in front of Margate. If you were to visit, you would find elements of the past present and future sitting alongside each other.
As an imagined place it highlights the groups (Blank Canvas) aspirations for the development of the town, there fears for the things that might be lost as well as real leaps of the imagination. The map and Fanzine were both on display in the learning studio for the opening of Turner Contemporary in April 2011.
