Fourthland:

Fourthland is a London-based art practice that explores themes across anthropology, myth and social architecture through a series of participatory and performative projects. With a focus on ‘acts of care’ and ‘handheld knowledge’, their work uses traditional craft and performance to interrupt public and private space in order to form new ways of communing across cultures and disciplines.
