Over Time


13th September — 26th October 2014 Time Travel probably isn't possible, we just keep on moving forward, but we all experience the tick tock of passing seconds and minutes in different ways. Time can be elastic and sometimes art can stop us in our tracks. The Over Time art project engages eleven contemporary artists to make ‘time pieces' in a place that is about to change forever... the Greenwich foreshore. Each of the artists will make a response to spending precisely the same fixed amount of 'clock time' (five hours without watches or phones) in the very historically resonant and atmospheric riverside space at Enderby's Wharf, the site of the first underwater telegraph cables. This is a site marked by time as industrial history, social development and the natural rhythms of the tides. Works will include sound, movement, performance, film, drawing, writing, conceptual, objects. This project is a way to explore time in a place that is already marked by time…… by the natural rhythms of weather and tides, the marks of our London ancestors, of industrial heritage and the rapid progress of city development. PROJECT SCHEDULE 13th & 14th September; Thames foreshore The initial part of the project will take place over the Thames Festival weekend with art and performance events on and around the Thames Path on both days. Over Time artists will be hosting drawing workshops with local people in Greenwich about their memories of and feelings about the riverside area. 26th October; National Maritime Museum and Queen's House and Greenwich University, Stephen Lawrence Gallery Archive Space A day of performances and new films about the foreshore developed for the Over Time project. ARTISTS Artists: Jo David, Claudia Firth, Charlie Fox, Katharine Fry, Rachel Gomme, Victoria Gray, Birgitta Hosea, The International Western, Gavin Maughfling, Sarah Sparkes and Ian Thompson. 18th September - 16th October; Stephen Lawrence Gallery Archive Space, Old Royal Naval College A month long art exhibition featuring work created throughout the project. See website, Facebook and Twitter for updates, timings and exact locations. Over Time is curated by artist Anne Robinson working in collaboration with David Waterworth at the Greenwich University Gallery. Anne teaches film at London Met University and has previously curated 'One More Time' project, Supernormal Festival, and the project is further supported by Arts Council England.
