Exhibition of the Artists' Moving Image
An Exhibition of the Artists' Moving Image
The London Group & Friends
June 11th - 18th 2018
St John's Crypt, Mon-Fri, 1-8pm; Sun 12-6pm
Responding to the Waterloo Festival's theme Transforming Minds, this exhibition was dedicated to the moving image. It took as its inspiration Ken Russell's 1980’s science fiction film, Altered States. The 16 works, which went on display in the historic crypt of St John's Waterloo, explored altered states in a variety of contexts, from perceptual, psychological and philosophical to societal, technological and geographical.
Exhibiting artists included Bryan Benge, Sandra Crisp, Eric Fong, Ingerlise Hansen, Genetic Moo, David Theobald, Charlie Tweed and Alan Warburton.
The London Group, one of the longest-running and most prestigious artists’ collectives in the world, has around 90 members and champions diversity of work and independent thinking. Celebrating its centenary in 2013 its illustrious history mirrored that of British art for much of the 20th century and today the Group is as strong as ever, with nine shows this year alone.
The London Group presented three exhibitions at the Waterloo Festival 2018 (see also Nothing Endures but Change and Beyond Image: The Permanent Revolution). Together they offered the perfect opportunity to showcase examples of the range of its members’ artistic practices.
