Each artist marks his or her territory. They may defend themselves against the others or cooperate; trade or start a war with them. They co-exist; there is no sequence of performances. The audience can visit any or all of the islands at any time. The artists may be building something towards a performance or occupation. What remains may be the aftermath of some activity. They may build camps or nests. The features are constantly changing. The works struggle for autonomy, where they simultaneously stand alone and share a common space.
WAKE and ARCHIPELAGO present a programme of installation and performance related work conceived and curated by London based artists Anne Bean and Gary Stevens. The two spaces, located five minutes walk away from each other across Southwark Park, will be home to an ongoing programme of events, installations and performances created by over 20 artists who will work and/or reside in one of the two spaces from between one and six weeks.
