Art Licks Weekend 2015, Artist Moving Image Programme
in association with LUX and South London Gallery
Colony presents a selection of works that engage with the physical and emotional human response to displacement, relocation and the formation of community through various documentary forms. The personal accounts from London to Afghanistan to South Korea, explored in the works by Laurèl Hadleigh, Chris Saunders and Ellie Kyungran Heo, resonate with broader notions of identity and socio-economic concerns.
Curated by Matt Carter, Head of Distribution at LUX.
The South London Gallery is an internationally acclaimed contemporary art space which has been free to the public since its foundation in 1891. The galleryʼs emphasis is on presenting new work by British and international artists, often by those who have rarely or never had a solo show in a London institution.
Art Licks Weekend is an annual three-day festival that celebrates the contribution that emerging artists and grassroots projects make to the cultural life of London. During the festival, artist-run projects, curatorial collectives and young galleries across the city open up their spaces for the public, with free events and exhibitions of young artistsʼ work.
