Community Pilgrimage, inspired by Susan Hiller

  • 24 September 2016 10am-4pm

On Saturday 24 September the Nunnery Gallery invites you to an artist-led pilgrimage to draw water from an ancient well in Valentine’s Park, Ilford, paying homage to the idea of a journey that brings people together and to explore the hidden streets of east London.

Inspired by renowned artist Susan Hiller, who collects water from sacred sites across the world for her Homage to Joseph Beuys series, the journey will be a unique opportunity to explore the history of water in east London using a map of memoires submitted by local residents.

Led and documented by artist filmmaker duo Caitlin and Andrew Webb-Ellis, who will use their research in a new installation artwork that will be unveiled at the Nunnery Gallery as part of the Museums at Night festival in October.

Starts at the Nunnery Gallery, Bow at 10am on Saturday 24 September

The full pilgrimage will take walkers east to Valentine’s Park, leading through the streets and green spaces of east London, including the Olympic Park, West Ham Cemetery and Wanstead Flats.

Join us along the way (the map route will be revealed in September) for less ambitious walkers.

Meet us at 4pm at Jacob’s Well, Valentine’s Park for the drawing of water event.

To draw water simply bring along a vessel of your choice.
(We may ask if these can be included in the gallery’s installation).

Family friendly

A digital map of the walk will be released shortly, available to download from this page.

Do you have memories of the East End?

Project artists Caitlin and Andrew would love to hear from you – these memories will inform the route we take. Please email caitlin@webb-ellis.org or call 020 8980 7774

This is part of Museum at Night’s Connect competition that the Nunnery Gallery won by public vote.
