Hi there,
Do you live or have lived in Elephant and Castle or Southwark?
Would you like to participate in making a piece of contemporary art, celebrating the multicultural identity of the borough?
We are looking for the languages listed below and are crossing them out as they come in.

Just record your voice while pronouncing the words “Elephant and Castle” in your native language, and tell us what the language is. (for example “L’Elefante e il Castello… Italiano” etc)
Then send us the recording as an audio message or with what’s app to 07726 702575 or by email to southwark@studiofla.com

All voices will then be transformed into a tridimensional sculpture, which will be on display in a new redeveloped area near Elephant Road.

Please send us your name and last name if you would like to be credited on the artwork.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Many thanks for your time!

A little about me:
After studying with Marina Abramovic at the PS1 Summer School in New York (2012) I graduated from Goldsmiths (2013) with an MFA in Computational studio Arts (distinction).
I had a key solo show at the Museum für angewandte Kunst (Vienna, 2013); selected group shows comprehend Pi Artworks (London, 2015), Kaunas Biennial (Kaunas, 2015) Sound Images Data (New York, 2015), Florence Trust Summer Show (London, 2015), Guest Projects (London, 2015), Museum of Contemporary Cuts (on-line, 2015), V&A London (London, 2014), Beers Contemporary (London, 2013), Open Data Institute (London, 2012) and Watermans Arts Centre (London, 2014).
I was selected for the SPACE CoLAB residency (London, 2015), East London Printmakers residency (2015), the Guest Project residency (London, 2015) and the Florence Trust residency (London, 2014).
Upcoming shows comprehend the participation in the Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art, a duo show at Kristin Hjellegjerde and a solo show at the MoCA Shanghai (September 2016).

I can offer Hebrew...
Saturday 2 July 2016 6.32pm
Hello Jackie,
Hebrew would be awesome!
It would be great if you could record your voice and send it over to either my mobile number 07726702575 (either with an audio message or what's app) or email address at southwark@studiofla.com
Please let me know if you need to know anything or if there is anything I could help with!
Also, if you would like to be credited, I would need to have your name and last name.
Many thanks in advance for your time and thanks for your interest!
All the best.

German went as well, but there are so many we still need :)
Sunday 3 July 2016 2.04pm
And Hebrew as well, thank you Jackie!

Hi Fabio,

I would offer an Italian version, but since you are Italian yourself (and a fellow Roman too) I don't think you would need it...
Sunday 3 July 2016 7.51pm
Ciao Jules,
Many thanks for your reply.
It would be a honour to have a fellow Roman for the Italian version.
I can't use my recording, I only ever lived in Hackney :)

Please feel free to send it over to my mobile to 07726702575 or email it to southwark@studiofla.com

Many thanks
Best wishes

Can you say more? Is it a commission? Temporary or permanent?
