Basecamp is an opportunity for artists Kelly Large and Flora Parrott to explore common and parallel themes within their work. The props and discussions that are developed over the time in the V22 Summer Club will be expanded into a program of talks, screenings and workshops.

About

The title ‘Basecamp’ comes from Parrott’s recent residency at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in 2016. Basecamp; a place of anticipation, tension, team dynamics, boredom, excitement, waiting and possibility. The artists will invite speakers, other artists, student groups and members of the public into the Basecamp to work through a series of questions.

The sessions will have an informal structure and will evolve according to the dynamic of the group in attendance and will be an opportunity to look at the literal, geographical basecamp and to draw parallels with imaginary landscapes. It will also look at the group dynamics and behaviors of the real and imagined expedition.

On the final day of the project there will be a series of talks and screenings to accompany the findings, viewed from within the Basecamp.

STUDY GROUP: Saturday 26 August, 1-4pm

TALKS AND SCREENINGS: Sunday 27 August, 1-5pm

Anyone under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Kelly Large is an artist and curator. Her multi-disciplinary practice engages with acts of public appearance and the agency attached to ‘being visible’; especially how different registers of visibility and public-ness are entangled with the social relations of art practice and its presentation.

Flora Parrott is an artist currently studying for a PhD in Geography at Royal Holloway University, her work, is concerned with intuitive and tacit knowledge, and with the endeavour to capture ungraspable experience.
