Project Description:
The Priceless exhibit has ran from August 7th-27th 2006, showcasing audiovisual portraits in conjunction with objects of special value, mobile exhibitions on the street, graphic installations and guided walks led by artists, from the Serpentine Gallery to South Kensington Underground foot tunnel through Exhibition Road in London.

International arts organisation motiroti has worked collaboratively with renowned artists, 9 partner cultural institutions and over 350 people who live or work in the area. The institutions were asked to select something of great value or importance, and local groups were invited to roadshows in which they were also asked to share their own special objects and stories, inspired by the institutions' choices. motiroti and its key collaborating artists have transcended the beauty and uniqueness of the people's personal stories to create a multi-layered artwork, in which the voices of individuals and institutions merge in unexpected ways. People's unique stories and memories were showcased through audiovisual portraits, mobile exhibitions, installations and large-scale projections.

Part of this fascinating work, were the personal networks created by Rodrigo Araya, shown here.
