In The Heart of The Whirlpool

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The exhibition features new work by Italian artist Pietro Bardini, and British artist Tice Cin, exploring a contemporary interpretation of the ideas behind the related British movement of Vorticism and Italian Futurism.

The artists have created an immersive installation in the centre of the Borough Road Gallery space based on Wyndham Lewis' idea that on the threshold of Vorticism:

"You think at once of a whirlpool. At the heart of the whirlpool is a great silent place where all the energy is concentrated."

Bardini and Cin's structure houses sound and poetry that feels like the true centre for a machine's energy. Surrounding this installation will be projections from a new 'Vorticist Manifesto'.

The gallery is hosting a performance following the narrative of the new Vorticist Manifesto on Friday at 6.30pm.
