Satellite Projects exhibition at SPACE was opened on 20 July and will run till 12 August 2011. The private view was proceeded by a talk The Politics of Place, by writer Ken Worpole and Dr Toby Butler.
Satellite Projects is a showcase of work created by three artist-led projects delivered over the past year with different communities in Hackney, Camden and Barking.
JESSIE BRENNAN, CHRIS DORLEY-BROWN AND DANIEL LEHAN : THE CUT
The Cut is an exhibition of new work by Jessie Brennan, Chris Dorley-Brown and Daniel Lehan. Spanning drawing, photography and text based work, the pieces respond to the personal testimonies and histories of a fascinating and until recently, overlooked place, at East London’s edge. The exhibition is the culmination of a year-long project. Local people volunteered to become oral historians working alongside the artists, recording personal perspectives that are at risk of becoming invisible, (or cut), in the regeneration process. A publication, THE CUT, edited by Chris Dorley-Brown, containing archive material and new work by the three artists, will be launched on 20th July.
