Surface Tension at Stour Space

Surface Tension exhibit poster

For April we are hosting two exhibitions in the space, it’s going to be a very exciting month for us and we hope you can make it down for a visit!

Click HERE to read about Found Notes by Daisy Bentley, happening in the main space. Upstairs we will be hosting Surface Tension by Rob St.John, commissioned by Thames21.

Both exhibitions will launch on Thursday 2nd April 2015, 7-10pm. Free entry.

“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.
