CONCRETE+CLAY is an exhibition of sculpture, installation, drawing and film creating cross connections between concrete and clay, geography and archaeology, past and present, real and imagined.


CONCRETE+CLAY is a curatorial collaboration between Roaming Room and Beacon Bureau. Their respective locations Roaming room (urban) and Beacon Bureau (rural) find commonality in the fact that, as raw materials, CONCRETE+CLAY are both extracted from the ground upon which we walk, live and build. This affinity makes these two materials suitable but unlikely bedfellows. Their plasticity comes to mind; their stability reliant on fire and water; fire rendering clay into a more permanent state whilst water (the antidote to fire) binds together the constituents of concrete giving it its strength. CONCRETE+CLAY, extracted from the ground and destined to return if not now but some time in the indeterminable future. Waiting to be unearthed by archaeologists and geologists who will pass judgement on our current geological epoch, the Anthropocene.

12 artists - Olivia Bax, Christie Brown, Robert Cervera, Dunhill and O'Brien, Inger Lise Hansen, Charles Hewlings, John Plowman, Nicholas Pope, Heather Power, Jelena Tomasevic, Eli Zafran.

This multi-disciplinary exhibition of the past and present, real and imagined is taking you on a journey, from extant WW2 pillboxes in rural locations through the experience of walking in the urban landscape to the demolition of high-rise tower blocks.
