Each year LUX hosts students from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design Fine Art Foundation programme to make work responding to and displayed across Waterlow Park in Highgate. Over the past three years the project has brought an extraordinary exhibition of sculpture, painting, performance and film to the park each Spring. This year due to the ongoing lockdown the project is going online with a series of new films produced by the 4D students.
Given LUX’s location within Waterlow Park, which was granted to local people as “a garden for the gardenless”, this year students were asked to respond to the function green spaces play in an urban environment. As a starting point several works that explore the notion of parks and landscape were selected from the LUX collection archive by the 4D tutors as inspiration for the students to consider whilst developing their own observations about the life and use of Waterlow Park and other urban green spaces.
The programme is curated by the 4D curators Eric Arnal, Lara Baksu & Olivia Lopez.
Through an experimental approach the 4D pathway explores the use of time-based media, performance and digital media as artistic mediums. The projects introduce students to a range of practical and critical skills to enable them to examine and critically discuss the impact of pressing contemporary issues on their lives; such as the reliability of the media, data generation and the nature of identity in the twenty-first century. For more information on the course see the Central Saint Martins website.
