Parks and Power Residency

May 12, 2022

LUX is pleased to announce that it has appointed artist Amy Feneck to undertake a 12 month residency to explore the relationships, dynamics and structures of power which surround Waterlow Park in which the organisation is based, working in collaboration with community groups, representatives and local organisations. Looking at histories of public parks, and organising practices in communities such as cooperatives and solidarity networks, the project will also draw upon democratic ways of working in artists’ moving image practices. Through active research, workshops and public events, the project will work with local knowlegdes and experience to create diverse re-presentations, and re-imaginings of the park and power. The title of the project comes from a discussion held with staff and board members of LUX in April 2022

Amy Feneck works collectively and collaboratively to create and facilitate processes of learning together. Her work is focused on the political possibilities these processes create. Her work draws on practices of self-education, feminist organising, and radical histories. In 2012 she co-founded The Alternative School of Economics, a collaboration with Ruth Beale. Their current and previous projects include: Tree Time a research project with TACO!, London, Rabbits Road Institute Library, a community collection and creative programme, Artists’ Economies, a poster artwork around Oslo for 100 Years of Conviviality, UKS, Oslo, The End of the Present, digital publication and residency with Arts Catalyst, London & Sheffield, True Currency: About Feminist Economics, a podcast series produced as part of a residency at Gasworks, London.
