April 2015 – Surface Tension
Opening times: 2nd April – 4th May 2015, 9am-5pm daily
“In summer 2014, Ben Fenton, project manager of the ‘Fixing Broken Rivers’ campaign run by London freshwater conservation charity Thames 21, got in touch with Rob St John, a Lancastrian musician, artist and writer. Ben had an unusual commission in mind: could Rob design a project drawing from both art and science to creatively explore and document pollution along London’s River Lea?”
A selection of photographs taken with 120 and 35mm box and pinhole cameras, mostly double exposed and the negatives treated in Lea river water for a month, will be exhibited at Stour Space, Hackney Wick throughout April. Opening and artist’s talk dates to be confirmed.
