Lose and Find Victoria - A participatory art trail

About


Designer and artist Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad has designed a participatory art trail around Victoria for Delfina Foundation as part of the Inside Out festival hosted by Create Victoria, Land Securities. The 2-hour mapping workshop/game will collectively explore the unregistered places and opinions within the area in response to pending redevelopment.

Working in small groups, participants are encouraged to explore the qualities of Victoria in a time of change before setting out in a race against the clock to accomplish a series of public interactions and observations. Together, the group will co-produce a limited edition and alternative map of the area ' a copy of which participants will get to keep.

Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad was one of Delfina Foundation's UK-based associate artists for both the Politics of Food 2014 and the Public Domain programmes.

Bahbak's practice is concerned with understanding and engaging social emergences within domestic and urban public spaces. Recent projects: Mapping Mapusa Market (AHRC, British Council, 2014), Lose and Find (LCCA, Riga, 2013), Penfold's Cupboard (The Showroom Gallery, 2013), The Possibility Forum (The Centre for Possible Studies, Serpentine Gallery, 2013), Telling Not Reading (w/ muf architects, 2013), Zoo-Topia (London Festival of Architecture, 2012), In Other Words (Sarai, Delhi, 2012).

He regularly teaches at Kingston University, Royal College of Art and Central St. Martins.

Delfina Foundation (DF) is dedicated to developing creative practice through residencies for artists, curators and thinkers. As London's largest international residency space, DF creates career-defining opportunities for emerging, as well as established practitioners to experiment with new ideas, explore connections, and build collaborations with colleagues, communities and institutions. Through its public programme, residents are provided with a platform for their work to be shared with both arts professionals and the wider public, in the form of exhibitions, screenings, events, talks and performances. www.delfinafoundation.com
