26 Caledonian Road is an exhibition of site-specific works by LCC MA Photography alumni, staff and students.


26 Caledonian Road is an exhibition of site-specific works to be held in a former deli, K.C. Continental Stores, temporarily renamed Geddes Gallery, in the heart of King’s Cross. This inspiring though unconventional site for an exhibition, now awaiting a new life after its closure, stands out today with its old-fashioned interior, wallpapers, and the unique combination of public and privateareas. The architectural nature of the space and its history invite reflection on heritage,memory, and how sculptural bodies (artworks) respond to, and dwell in, domestic spaces.

By inviting the creation of new works for a specific location, the project also aims at exploring their modes of production, encouraging reflection on the artists’ creative process, the role of external projects in their work, and how these are articulated within their usual practice.

The exhibition features mysterious and anonymous portraits of the former inhabitants and
owners of the space; distorted and expanded films aimed at re-activating the site ‘about to disappear’; parmesan cheese wrapped in a photogravure on greaseproof paper; and even a ‘Jungian’ cleansing ritual on the opening day to mark the transition from ´home´ to ´art space’.

Works by: Peter Ainsworth, Giulia Astesani, Diane Bielik, Anne Clements, Nicky Coutts &Theodore Ereira-Guyer, Ed Dimsdale, Ana Escobar, Silvia Gentili, Wiebke Leister, Jessie McLaughlin, Linda Motta, Stephanie Murray, Richard Nicholson, Elisa Noguera Lopez, Liz Orton, Minna Pöllänen, Jessica Potter, Sophy Rickett, Alessandra Rinaudo, Michael Rodgers, Roshana Rubin-Mayhew, Ernst Schlogelhofer, Marcello Simeone, Emma Jane Spain, Paul Tebbs, Brenda Vega, Tessa Williams.

The exhibition is curated by Magali Avezou, Marcello Simeone and Sayako Sugawara from the LCC MA Photography Alumni Group and includes works from current students, alumni & staff.

Funded by UAL Student Experience & Engagement Fund.
