The LivingRoom presents A leap of faith, the third act of the project that introduces the work of twelve artists in an extraordinary venue, St. Laurence Church in Catford. Built in the 60’s, the religious setting gives continuation to the Anglican tradition whilst also looking into the future through its architecture and decor.
A leap of faith is an encounter of simultaneous temporalities, considering at once the universe, civilisation and the individual; questioning our existence in relation to infinite time and space or to a particular constructed moment in history. Based on natural phenomena, scientific observations or constructed narratives, the works ponder on past ideas and beliefs whilst also constructing their contemporary ones. This cycle of renewal, found in religion as well as in other systems, is visible in the artists’ attempts to make sense of and reorganise traces of our existence.
The LivingRoom is a nomadic space dedicated to the curation, exhibition and promotion of sound, performance and visual art. Playing with the boundaries between the display of the work and the work itself, The LivingRoom hosts events within different contexts in found spaces.
