Curated by Catherine Borra, artists featured in “The Bunker” include Jenny Moore-Koslowsky, Justin Gainan and Pim Conradi. This is Conradi’s first public exhibition, despite the fact that he’s in his sixties. The artist, who lives in an art squat in Peckham, makes Buckminster Fuller-esque geometrical structures out of found materials.
The Bunker is propelled by the search for different spaces and modes of operation. Pushing expectations for the future forward, we can trigger the motor of history to act, evolve and motion.
The Centre of the Universe is a nomadic art space run by Catherine Borra, Nina Trivedi, Olivia Hegarty, Gedvile Bunikyte, Jordan Hunt & Matthew Stone. They organise art exhibitions and events in spaces accessed for free.
Not quite an exhibition, but a deep challenge to an environment. In an abandoned and unidentified post-war bunker, spreading out underneath Dalston, East London, this show is a response to the space it inhabits and to the history it recalls.
(The environment is very damp. Please wear appropriate shoes.)
