A unique opportunity to view the work of international artists-in-residence Joon Kim (Korea), Wilhelm Klotzek (Germany), Christina Kral (Germany) and Luisa Ungar (Colombia). Screenings, tours, talks and other events will also take place over the weekend.
The exhibition Dependency is also on show throughout the weekend, and events on the Friday coincide with SLAM Last Fridays, a late night opening of over 90 galleries in South London.
OPEN STUDIO TOUR
FRIDAY 27 JUNE, 6.30pm
Gasworks' Residencies Programmer leads an informal tour of the residency artists' studios.
READING: WILHELM KLOTZEK CANS AND REAL WOOD BLINDS
FRIDAY 27 JUNE, 8pm
'When the lost places of a rapidly transfiguring childhood cannot be inventoried, there are still some materials or constellations that hold memories.' From the book Cans and Real Wood Blinds
Wilhelm Klotzek presents a reading that revolves around the building pits of his hometown Berlin post 1989, exposing the crossing places and blind spots of his subconscious city. As the story develops, the artist suddenly falls into an involuntary dialogue with a figure who activates a chain reaction of free association, turning Klotzek's view of art production in his own sculpture works upside-down.
TALK: Residency Artists
SATURDAY 28 JUNE, 2pm
As part of the Open Studio Weekend, Gasworks' visiting artists introduce their practice and discuss the projects they have pursued whilst in London.
PERFORMATIVE TALK: LUISA UNGAR
SATURDAY 28 JUNE, 4pm
Resident artist Luisa Ungar presents various threads of her residency research which has centred around the importation of exotic animals in 19th century London alongside investigations into our relationship to animals and their embodiment of human characteristics.
Check back soon for further events during the weekend.
All events are free.
