An art event by the Alter Us Collective which took place at Clerkenworks, 40 Bowling Green Lane, London. It took the form of a pop-up exhibition with live music, and ran from 11th to 13th September 2020, featuring the work of sixteen artist-members of Alter Us. This event was organised and curated by Tere Chad and me.
Alter Us is a London-based multi-disciplinary collective in which artists explore issues surrounding the environment, sustainability, social relations and technology in the age of the Anthropocene. Our manifesto is based on a series of questions concerning human co-existence with nature. The work displayed at this event was all made either shortly before, during or shortly after the summer lockdown, and enabled us to present snapshots of our individual experiences of the pandemic together as a collective, and to discuss the impact it has had on our 'new reality'. The works I showed, myself, were from my 'Improvised Rhythms' series of carborundum prints, as pictured below.
Artists: César Baracca, Lorenzo Belenguer, Lois Bentley, Tere Chad, Sarah Cunningham, Mandeep Dillon, Paul Hindle (who also provided live music throughout the private view), M. Lohrum, Nathalie Mei, Parizad Nobakht, Tom Norris, Teresa Paiva, Christopher Pearson, Ana Luiza Rodrigues, Ludmila Sigismondo, and Giuseppe Mario Urso.
