Hidden In Plain Sight
Opening reception: Thursday 5th March 2015, 7-10pm, Free entry
Daily hours: Friday 6th – Monday 30th March 2015, Free entry
As part of Lucy Dalzell’s ongoing exploration of London’s evolving landscape, Hidden In Plain Sight brings together artworks that observe, document and playfully recreate the places and spaces we interact with, but rarely acknowledge.
Hackney Wick served as the catalyst for this ongoing body of work. Whilst living and working in the area in the years leading up to the Olympics, Dalzell started to visually document the hidden, often unnoticed pockets of the Wick, as the area rapidly evolved. This soon expanded into investigating areas going through similar transformations across London.
Hidden In Plain Sight features a responsive soundscape by artist Nuno Veiga. During the lead up to this exhibition, Veiga and Dalzell have collaborated on collecting sound pieces from the areas featured in the artworks, which have then been crafted by Veiga to create an immersive soundscape as part of the exhibition.
