This pop-up exhibition claims to offer a unique insight into the gritty underbelly of Bankside.
A newly commissioned work by the sound artist Bruce Gilbert, titled Time Interior, will respond to the urban context, alongside recordings of tales of growing up in the area by residents and small business owners, acoustically documenting the processes of change rapidly being experienced in the area.
An on-site Vox Pop will provide the chance for visitors to drop by and leave their recordings of memories, experiences or desires for the future of the area, take home a souvenir and drink tea in the pop-up parlour.
The project will become a form of social investigation facilitating the opportunity to add to the archive of memories, thoughts, and prophesies about the area, its past and future.
The exhibition space will be decked out with unique souvenirs, which take their cue from the quieter unsung elements of Bankside.
Bankside-on-Call is the first in a series of exhibitions and events that will be taking places in Better Bankside's new Pop Up Space at 7 Chancel Street. This is part of Better Bankside's long term strategy to bring a pop up to the area to demonstrate creative uses of spaces and to bring life to unexplored parts of Bankside.
7 Chancel Street is a fully refurbished railway arch owned by Network Rail.
