Palindromic Sequence : A live Map of the Thames Shore
When? Art Licks Weekend
Sunday 4th October 2015 - 2pm-4pm
**No need to book a space**
What? This year for Art Licks Weekend, join AltMFA for our third annual psycho-geographical adventure.
Collect your map from Bermondsey Station between 2-4pm to find durational performances, actions and site specific pieces along the Thames foreshore at low tide. Narratives, objects and actions will arise from mud, concrete and cul-de-sacs.
Where? Starting at Bermondsey Tube Station, 142-154 Jamaica Road, London SE16 4RX
"Texts appear beneath your feet. Grid reference TQ335795. A seeping procession of walkers huddle on the foreshore, their fortunes being read by a transatlantic Mud-lark. Peering through binoculars, you witness a tiny figure on the other side of the Thames. It is waving a giant knife and fork. [Behind you: Drone sound of robotic lingerie graze on someone’s front lawn]. A foreshore-footed figure ushers the pilgrims into a garage behind the estates, where voices echo through wheelie bins. It’s not over until the invisible man returns" - Notes on last year's walk.
Louise Ashcroft, Paula Bourke-Girgis, Sadie Edginton, Alex Chalmers, Gillian Duffy, Asher Herr, Fritha Jenkins, Eldi Dundee, Benjamin Newell, Amy Leung, Rebecca Olajide, Maru Rojas, Shinji Toya and Marion Tu.
