Pervilion at Art Night
July 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pmFree
The Store X The Vinyl Factory presents Pervilion at Art Night, London’s biggest free festival of contemporary art. Pervilion activates the extraordinary urban garden of Oasis Farm Waterloo through newly commissioned performance, installation and sound:
JAMES KNIGHT & MICHAEL KNIGHT
Oasis Farm Waterloo
18 Carlisle Ln
London SE1 7LG
(Nearest tube: Lambeth North/Waterloo)
6 – 11pm
\\\ Performance by Sasha Pirogova at 7pm & 8pm (c. 15 min.) ///
\\\ Refreshments by The Store X until 11pm ///
* In ‘Shift’, a major new performative work, SASHA PIROGOVA explores the transformative effect of the garden. Penetrating the rigid and dissonant manmade space, the living world raises our consciousness of humans as part of it and evokes a feeling of unity.
* CLEMENTINE KEITH-ROACH harnesses the tradition of the ornamental water feature as an invitation to relax and reflect. In a monumental fountain, breasts are cast in uncanny detail, playing on the body as vessel, milk as a medium and nipples as sentient nodes. This site-specific installation stems from the sensual life of the farm animals snuffling, suckling and reproducing nearby.
* In an evocative live set, JAMES KNIGHT & MICHAEL KNIGHT summon an improvised collage of sound consisting of field recordings, made both in the space itself and the surrounding area, which are manipulated using modular synthesis.
