Drawing on the textures and aesthetics of the urban environment, industrial processes, natural and consumer materials, the artists will respond to the unique architecture of Assembly Point to describe ideas around power, disorientation, structures and containment.
A publication will be produced and launched during the course of the exhibition — more info to follow.
Edgar—Walker is a collaborative duo of artists James Edgar (b.1978, London) and Sam Walker (b.1986, London). The pair have been working on projects together as Edgar—Walker since meeting on the MA Fine Art course at Camberwell College of Arts, where they graduated in 2013. Their approach to making has been influenced by ideas around poiesis, play, dialogue and experimentation. Edgar–Walker’s sculptures, installations and printed matter utilise a palette of found and overlooked materials from everyday contexts. Their varied output registers as both formal and playful, seeking to delineate the boundaries between material, image, form and function. The artists also co-founded and opened Assembly Point in 2015 where they oversee the programming and operations alongside their artistic practice. They were recently featured in the article: “The London Artist-Run Galleries You Need to Know” published by Artsy (2016).
