GHost IV: Presence and Absence

VENUE

St. John on Bethnal Green

200 Cambridge Heath Road, E2 9PA (next to Bethnal Green tube)

December 6th 7th & 8th

An exhibition and series of art events exploring the desire to materialise what is absent via the medium of haunted landscapes or through the manifestations of the ghostly. Works have been selected in response to research seminars, held earlier this year, at UOL. The exhibition will feature audio visual installation plus a programme of performances and artists film screenings all sited throughout this atmospheric John Soane Church of St John Bethnal Green.

The winter nights are long and dark and the church’s stone floors breathe out cold vapours. Wrap up warm, or bring a blanket . Wander around the vestibule, belfry and gallery, haunted by manifestations of moving images, interventions and performances and entwined with the smell of incense. Then settle down in a pew and cast yourself adrift in the films and sounds of haunted landscapes, haunted seas.

Warming winter drinks will be served.
