True life is elsewhere, Rimbaud. We agree, but prefer Kundera. Life is Elsewhere resonates in us, it is a profound precept of our condition and germane to the space we choose. BORA AKINCITURK FRANK AMMERLAAN SOHRAB BAYAT ELIF BOYNER TIANZHUO CHEN EDWARD COLLINSON BETH FOX HAYLEY GOODSELL VIVIENNE HOLLIS OLIVER GUY-WATKINS LARA KAMHI GEMINI KIM GALA KNORR ANNE KUHN ENDA MAC NALLY HOLLIE MARSHALL JENNIFER LOUISE MARTIN KATE MCLEOD ELAINE MULLINGS AINE O'DWYER ASLI OZDEMIR JAMIE PARTRIDGE ELSA PHILIPPE GIUSY PIRROTTA ANNA SALAMON LIESEL THOMAS KSENIA VASCHENKO TYLER VIPOND JWAN YOSEF Responding in a direct and literal way to the history of The Crypt Gallery under St Pancreas Church, the theme Life Is Elsewhere is drawn from title of a novel by Milan Kundera. The phrase also acts as a metaphor to the lives of those working within the institution. All participating artists are currently studying, or have recently studied within Central St Martins, The Royal Academy, The Royal College, Slade School Of Art, Chelsea, Goldsmiths and The London College Of Fashion. The challenge of moving from the routine implied by educational establishments into the less directed world of producing in a self-motivated environment is a fact that looms on the horizon. But where does life exist? Is life an ongoing continuum or can we place it on hold? These questions and others relating to the theme will be investigated by the participating artists, resulting first in a ten day exhibition beginning on April 22nd 2011, and secondly in a publication to be released on the weekend of April 29th/30th. The launch will coincide with a series of modest performances, talks and experiments within the space. The exhibition will be split into two parts, with one location showing a series of films by six artists on a single screen.
