8-12 Faircharm, Creekside, Deptford, SE8 3D2
27th September – 6th October
Loopart is to present “A field of character” in partnership with Deptford X Art Festival, opening tonight Friday 27th September 2013 from 6-10pm and running until 4th October at Creekside ex-artists’ studios in Deptford. This celebration of work is the culmination of 10 artists three-month sculpture residency programme.
Each artist portrays a unique approach to sculpture and making, inspired by social and political issues from the UK and internationally. The programme brings together a group of artists to initiate conversations, investigations and encourage process-based practices by developing an environment where exchange and participation are facilitated.
The works exhibited represents each artist’s journey through their medium in response to their community and environment. Collectively the celebration challenges the concept of the ‘exhibition’ by breaking the boundaries of a studio-based environment and bringing this into the public realm.
All artists are exhibiting the progress they have made through this programme, whether it is an idea or a finished piece.
“A Field of Character” has been curated by Luisa Spina and Laura Martin.
Artists include: Anna Louise Hale, Dylan Spencer–Davidson, Emma Fitts, Ester Svensson, Joe Stevens, Katy Wallwork, Luisa Spina, Nicole Mollett, Sarah Tew, Sophia Demetriou and guest artist: Joachim Deville
Loopart13 is an artist led, not-for-profit initiative run by Luisa Spina. It aims to bring together groups of artists who are interested in creating a platform for artist development and create future collaborations.
There will be performances, talks and other events throughout the celebration, inviting the local community to attend and participate.
