As London property development continues to edge out to the very margins of our urban wastelands an exhibition of painting, dance, music and spoken word celebrates these forgotten corners of our landscape.
Building upon the success of last spring’s event Edgelands, an exhibition by members of the Contemporary British Painting Group - Day Bowman, Dan Coombs, Marguerite Horner, Barbara Howey, Lee Maelzer and Sean Williams - sets out to explore and document the wastelands and neglected environs found on the fringes of urban living.
Creekside in Deptford can still be said to be on the edge of London’s urban wastelands - but not for long. The cranes are working over-time and the wharves, vacant lots and back-yards that have housed traders and dealers for centuries are being erased and given over to developers. It is fitting, therefore, that an exhibition that addresses these landscapes is taking place in the wonderful spaces of A.P.T Gallery that has, for some years, been a beacon of contemporary art.
A.P.T Gallery is delighted to stage an evening of dance and spoken word on Thursday 24 November, 5.30 to 8.00pm. A dance performance, choreographed by Lizzi Kew-Ross, accompanied by Michael Berkeley’s powerful edgy soundscape Odd Man Out, is a realisation of the visual artists’ work through three dimensional form and content. This will be followed by a discussion with Iain Sinclair, author of London Orbital and Nick Papadimitriou, author of Scarp, when they will highlight their experiences of the changing face of inner-city wastelands.
A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition with an essay by Andrew Lambirth.
Edgelands will tour the following galleries during 2017: Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Hartlepool Art Gallery, ARB University of Cambridge, Beverley
Museum and Art Gallery and Gloucester City Museum and Art Gallery.
