Deserts on the moons of other planets (solo)
24 March – 23 April 2017
Private view: Thu 23 Mar, 6–9pm
Passen-gers, The Brunswick Centre
Nearest tube: Russell Square

Passen-gers – a site-specific exhibition series at the Brunswick Centre – is pleased to announce its fourth exhibition, ‘Deserts on the moons of other planets’, a site-specific installation by artist Julie Hill.

Within the architecture of the podium section, a cold moon is perceived over cosmic distances. A humming emanates from its dark equatorial regions. It is calling ☽ Reflected light illuminates the surface at a 35-degree angle of incidence, revealing dark lines snaking in patterns of undulation and divergence. Slithering dunes composed of loose, ice coated sediment forced by the wind into various markings: waves, cat scratches, intricate fingerprints ☽ Vast sand seas immerse in an intense psychological experience, giving way to flat, transitional zones of overall greyness. Forms and shapes are hard to recognise and appear as quickly as they are eroded. According to legend this place has the power to steal consciousness.

Join us for the culmination of Lumen’s Residency in Atina, Italy, between 1–15 September 2016. The resident artists and exhibition have been curated by Louise Beer, Raymond Hemson, Melanie King and Natasha Sabatini. This two-week residency has been set up to help like-minded artists from multi-disciplines develop their practice in a relaxed, yet productive environment. The peaceful village of Atina, situated 154km from Rome in the province of Frosinone-Lazio, benefits from natural darkness, natural beauty and is a great spot for viewing the Moon, stars and meteor showers.
Staying on site, artists have the opportunity to create works responding to the variety of astronomical sights found there. Artists benefitted from a large studio space, telescope access, a basic darkroom and visits to Campo Cassino Observatory, Montecassino Abbey, Santa Maria Assunta and CAMUSAC Gallery. As part of the exhibition, we will also be launching a publication by Makina Books and a film of the residency by Raymond Hemson.

Free from the information desk. Published by PETREL 2015.
Sluice__ is an art initiative run by an artist, a curator and an educationalist. Sluice__ was formed as a provocation and foregrounds criticality as a central concern. Sluice__ strategically adopts structures in order to showcase artist, curator and emergent discourse, projects and galleries.
