An Empty Vessel: Webb-Ellis installation
- 27 October 2016 7-9pm
Artist duo Webb-Ellis will transform the gallery at Crescent Arts into a living, evolving, generative installation exploring what connects us in an age of increasing alienation.
The artists will work in the exhibition space throughout October, collaborating with visitors to the gallery to create a growing web of connections and associations that will culminate in the creation of a new audio-visual installation for Museums at Night, premiering simultaneously at both Crescent Arts and the Nunnery Gallery in East London.
At Crescent Arts, this generative installation is a great opportunity to make visible the process of creating a work of art, and to explore the themes behind the work in greater depth. The gallery will contain research material (images, books, text, writing, drawings, sound and video etc.) as well as the means to produce more material (computers, camera, microphone, printer) and these will be available to visitors to use, working with Webb-Ellis to add to the growing web of connections and associations.
