CAMP with Shunya Collective present a large solar cyanotype map of the sea, part of the long-term maritime project Wharfage. 

More than 100 cities and small ports from Khor al Zubair/ Basra to the Mozambique corridor from North-South, and from Bharuch to Berbera East to West, are marked as frontier towns. The sea in between is proposed as its own “country”, a new geographical and cultural entity.

CAMP draws a series of lines between this and that exhibition.Not only between country A and country B, or horizontally between peoples or on the plane of "cultural exchanges" or "extra-national space", but vertically, or diagonally, reaching out to an actual place, to its actual power and presence.
