Light and Dark (Park)
Sun 30 Sep 2018 / 6pm - 9pm
collective-iz expands the parameters of the ‘park’ through a programme of film, video and live performance works which merge at the cusp of nature and urban life.
Bringing together historical and contemporary experimental approaches, the audience is led off the concrete to encounters with urban pockets of nature, wild or contained that include the use of public space for direct political activism, cameraless film processes, re-appropriated archival footage, and filmic flower bouquets. The programme responds to the particular setting of Waterlow Park, where LUX is based, borrowing its title from the Cockney rhyming slang for Park – a nod to the London County Council’s notice to the effect that a bell was rung and the gates locked at dusk.
With works by Maria Anastassiou, Nick Collins, Amy Dickson, Jamie Jenkinson, Deniz Johns, Rose Lowder, Imogen Stidworthy, Karolina Raczynski & Cathy Rogers.
Doors open 6pm for 6.30pm start.
Please note there will be no late admissions.
Waterlow Park closes at sunset and all gates into the park will be locked at 7pm.
