DAVID PANOS: TIME CRYSTALS

  • 4 October — 17 December 2017 *on now

Wednesdays - Sundays 11 - 4pm

Exhibition tour: Thursday 5 October, 3pm
Drinks reception: Saturday 7 October, 2 – 6pm

Wandsworth Council’s Pump House Gallery presents a solo exhibition of recent work by artist David Panos that examines the contemporary revival of cultural motifs from the 1980s and 90s, particularly from ‘alternative’ and ‘rave’ subcultures.

Colliding and contrasting ‘authentic’ archival material, digital compositing and animation, choreography and contemporary club footage in a presentation of videos and installation elements, the exhibition explores how media and industrialised ‘fast’ fashion transform how we might interpret and remember the past.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a public programme of events, including live performances by Misters of Circe and Josh GT and a panel discussion on 1980s and 1990s subcultural music movements on Saturday 21 October. Further dates to be announced on the website.

This exhibition is supported by Wandsworth Council.

A DANCE AND GESTURE ARCHIVE

  • 4 October — 17 December 2017 *on now

Wednesdays - Sundays 11 - 4pm

Designed in dialogue with David Panos’s exhibition Time Crystals, Pump House Gallery presents ‘A Dance and Gesture Archive’, where audiences are invited to explore the exhibition’s themes and ideas through gesture, movement and dance. Visitors of all ages can drop in and take part by dancing to their favourite song on camera and recording it in front of a green screen. The final archive of all the videos produced over the course of the project will be displayed during the final two weeks. There will also be a series of free family workshops exploring dance and gesture with a dancer/choreographer, and how fashion and style are important to culture.

Suitable for

  • Any age
