Chroma at House of Vans from 29 November until 17 December 2017

In collaboration with award winning design and creative collective Studio PSK will be transforming the Tunnel One gallery space into an immersive light and play installation. 🔸🔻🔹▫️▪️

The entire exhibition – from the specially commissioned artworks, to the objects within it – use the same shade of red, green and blue. Lighting in the space is controlled by a bespoke musical score; when flooded with the changing red, green and blue light, an analogue ‘stop frame animation’ effect is created – making static images appear to move.

Clare, A young woman at university happens upon an English translation of a play written by Hitler’s favourite playwright and it upsets her entire world view. She can’t help but see strong parallels in how the media was manipulated then, and now. Filled with anxiety that the world she lives in is not as noble as everyone is led to believe, she digs deeper, and deeper and deeper. Jumps down a rabbit hole that eventually isolates her from everyone she knows and loves. Her friends shun her, her parents demean her, her work fires her, her teachers expel her. If the truth is the truth then why won’t anyone listen? Her anger consumes her. Her thoughts turn extreme, she finds extremists to confide in… and they begin planning, something dangerous..

On Clare’s quest for truth, does she become her worst fear, or reveal her worst fear?

Craft Theatre, one of the top fringe theatre companies in London, brings you their newest piece, fast paced thriller ‘A Nazi Comparison’. Devised from ‘Shalateger’ by Hanns Johst (Poet Laurette to the Third Reich), contemporary political rhetoric, buried facts, intense drama, physical feats, and nuanced storytelling; to bring you one of the most controversial pieces to hit London since Edward Bond’s Saved…

Can you handle the truth?

Fahrelnissa Zeid @ Tate Modern / until 15th October 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 10am-6pm, Fri and Sat until 10pm

@ Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

Tickets: £11.30 book online

www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/fahrelnissa-zeid

Indulge in Zeid’s obsession with line and dazzling colour in this exhibition. Rediscover one of the greatest female artists of the 20th century in this first major retrospective.​ 🎨

Trained in both Paris and Istanbul, Fahrelnissa Zeid was an important figure in the Turkish avant-garde d Group in the early 1940s and the École de Paris (School of Paris) in the 1950s. Her vibrant abstract paintings are a synthesis of Islamic, Byzantine, Arab and Persian influences fused with European approaches to abstraction. Many of her abstract works are monumental and demand attention.

Zeid’s reputation as an artist was cemented in the 1950s when she was living between London and Paris and exhibiting extensively internationally. The artist also began experimenting with painting on turkey and chicken bones, which she later cast in polyester resin panels evocative of stained-glass windows. In the later years of her life she unexpectedly returned to figurative painting, creating stylised portraits of her friends and family.

P.L.A.N.T. @ RHS Summer Urban Gardening Show / Wednesday 12th – 13th July 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 12pm-9pm

@ RHS Lawrence Hall, London SW1P 2QD

www.hendricksgin.com/plant

Hendrick’s Gin requires human volunteers to take part in a genuine and most unusual scientific experiment in an attempt to make harmonious music through cucumber collaboration and cocktail consumption.

Step forward those with a strong head for science and a penchant for Hendrick’s, come visit the Perilous Laboratory for the Absorbent of Natural Teachings (P.L.A.N.T.).

At the lab, scientists have investigated how to invigorate human connection with the natural world through a series of experiments. The noble cucumber is one of the most mysterious yet delectable infusions in Hendrick’s Gin and through science, P.LA.N.T. aims to unearth the green fruit’s wondrous secrets. Are they sentient beings? What knowledge can humanoids garner from these wise vessels?

Individuals who attend P.L.A.N.T. will be greeted by Hendrick’s Laboratorians, who will lead the experiment to make music through collaborating with a set of cucumbers which are rigged up a piece of software that when triggered creates a different sound and style. The sounds are programmed and designed in such a way that when all played together – a verdant and cacophonic composition worthy only of the ears of the curious is created. If successful in making a peculiar composition, folk will be rewarded with a Hendrick’s and Tonic.

A voyage of discovery of one of the all-time great symphonies, Beethoven’s era-defining Eroica. Forged as a powerful expression of the human and spiritual ideals he held close to his heart, Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony tells the story of the hero and his journey towards fulfillment.

Enter the transformed world of a heroically inspired Oval Space where you’ll greeted by the friendly team. Unwind from the stresses of your week; catch up with friends, enjoy a drink from the bar (including a delicious Eroica-inspired cocktail) and a bite to eat on the terrace; explore the space before getting comfortable for the concert, with drink in hand.

In an intimate and beautiful setting, on a comfy sofa if you feel like treating yourself and a friend, this is a wonderful opportunity to get close to the full sound of Beethoven’s orchestra and experience the struggle, anguish, and triumph of his epic portrayal of heroism through music. Nicholas, the conductor, will set the scene with his friendly introductions, sharing some of the stories and ideas behind the music.

After the final resounding chord of the symphony has died away, the bar reopens and the evening becomes social – a little party you are warmly invited to… To help set the mood, there will be some suitably cool live jazz, which we will be announcing nearer the time. Enjoy the atmosphere, relax with friends and meet the young, talented musicians who play in the orchestra, as well as Nicholas and the team.

teamLab: Transcending Boundaries @ Pace Gallery / until 11th March 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: Tues-Sat 11-4

@ PACE London, 6 Burlington Gardens, London W1S 3ET

Free entry, booking essential!

Exploring the role of digital technology in transcending the physical and conceptual boundaries that exist between different artworks, with imagery from one work breaking free of the frame and entering the space of another.

The installations also dissolve distinctions between artwork and exhibition space, and involve the viewer through interactivity.

The largest room in the exhibition will include six works and feature Universe of Water Particles, Transcending Boundaries (2017), a virtual waterfall that extends beyond the gallery wall onto the floor, flowing through the exhibition space and around the feet of the viewer. It engages with the concept of Ultra Subjective Space, central to teamLab’s practice, referencing the non-perspectival depiction of space in premodern Japanese art and situating the viewer directly within the realm of the artwork.

Encompassing the second room, Dark Waves (2016) is a simulation of the movement of waves based on the behaviour of hundreds of thousands of water particles. The waves are created in a three-dimensional virtual space, expressing water as a living entity that immerses the viewer and suggests an intrinsic connection with nature.

In the last room, the darkened space is transformed by the presence of the viewer, which activates Flowers Bloom on People (2017). With the body as a canvas for the projections, flowers are in a process of continuous change—growing, decaying and scattering in direct response to the viewer’s movements.
