About the exhibition
As we navigate a changing world with constantly shifting boundaries, we need to take on board new possibilities on all levels: physical, psychological and spiritual.
The London Group and Friends present an outdoor exhibition of art works from over 20 international artists. Curated by Almuth Tebbenhoff and Cadi Froehlich, the show explores the process of transformation; be that of matter, ideas or self-perception. Questions of how we interact with nature and our environment, with each other and with ourselves will come alive with this feast of art in the spacious gardens of St John’s Waterloo. Almuth Tebenhoff is interviewed in the Festival magazine.
An open guided tour of the exhibition is scheduled for Monday, 17th June at 4pm. Come and explore the art-work with some of the artists themselves!
About the curators
Almuth Tebbenhoff fabricates large steel cages to capture emotions, hollows out blocks of marble to find a fluid movement and burns holes into paper to let light through. She was born in northern Germany and moved to the UK in 1969 where she studied ceramics at London’s Sir John Cass School of Art. From 1985-6 she studied metal fabrication at South Thames College, and on scholarship in Pietrasanta in 2006 added marble carving to her skills. In 2012/13 she curated two sculpture shows for Leicester University.
Cadi Froehlich is a British artist whose practice explores the physicality of exchanges between people, objects and material. Using salvaged copper, cables and electrical components, her work investigates the hidden infrastructure of the interaction between these things, often highlighting the dichotomy between the drive to improve connections and the costs of the commodification of resources and self.
