A moving image and architectural installation by artists Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski, occupying the indoor and outdoor spaces of the building. The exhibition will be accompanied by a performance programme hosted in the gallery curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini, featuring Berry Patten, Megan Rooney, Patrick Goddard and BADFOOD.

About

309 Bethnal Green Road is of particular significance to Levack and Lewandowski as their former home. The work responds to this personal context and the wider issues around how artistic society functions in the modern global city of London, with the rising cost of living making alternative lifestyles increasingly difficult to sustain. The performances will feature responses to these ideas, acting as a bridge between the city street outside and the domestic home environment inside.

The installation will include a new digital video, Alternative Equinox (2014), presenting dystopian and utopian visions as poetic cityscapes, together with portraits of friends in public spaces, shot on the spring and autumn equinoxes and evoking a nostalgic vision of freedom. The video will be presented as part of a site-specific immersive installation that will include paintings, sculptures, textiles and architectural interventions, creating a powerful sense of place in this totemic building. A specially commissioned text by writer and curator Francesca Gavin will accompany the exhibition.
