Elephant and Castle: A Changing Landscape

  • 6 June 2015 2-6pm

Siobhan Davies Dance host an afternoon of film screenings that chart the changing landscape of Elephant & Castle.

Featuring Vision Quest: A Ritual for Elephant & Castle by Marcus Coates - part documentary, part performance, part art, part archive – the film explores major transitions in the south London neighbourhood and Home Sweet Home (2012) by Enrica Colusso. Centred around the now derelict Heygate Estate, Home Sweet Home tells a complex but intimate story of urban and social transformation, and asks: what kind of society are we building?

Tickets go on sale in May 2015.
Part of London Festival of Architecture.

Edge and Shore: Acts of Doing

  • 8 — 12 July 2015

Working within the gallery space the artists reveal an ever-evolving work that brings together objects, collected and found materials, images, film, writing and live making. A development of an extended research project where the artists considered process and making, the work explores where the borders of their two creative practices meet and permeate.

The work offers an insight into the creative process which is highlighted for two hours each day (12pm-2pm) when the artists are in a focused period of activity. The artists also venture out of the gallery, continuing to gather materials and ideas by looking out at the world together.

Visitors are invited into the gallery throughout the day to see the work progress and are encouraged to come back at regular intervals to observe the different states that a work might take as it develops.

This work is commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
