Sally Buchanan: Down to Earth
Over the last 4 months I’ve been beavering away as an Artist in Residence
at The Free Space Gallery in Kentish Town Health Centre. It’s been quite
an interesting life experience - to return as an Artist to the very Practice
where I trained as a GP some 30 years ago!
Installation : Aurora Indoors (minimum 1500 x 500 x 250 cm)
This piece is based on the idea that some elements of the Northern Lights
could come inside the building. Here the paths of charged particles travel
across three floors up and down the busy metal stairwell ; the intention is
to soften and to shift and open out the energy of the space and to change
the experience for the patients and staff using the stairs.The threads of
imagination are coming “Down to Earth.”
Preview date : Thursday 9th June
Kentish Town Health Centre
2, Bartholomew Road
I’ve made several site specific threaded installations like this and much
more recently, some alternative low relief works, tracing out the paths of
intuitive and imagined energy forms which although actually present at
this moment in time, aren’t permitted to materialise or to interact directly
with The Freespace Gallery itself!
And so ; taking inspiration from some of the imperceptible energy forms
which really do continually come ‘Down to Earth.” I am still wondering…
if only we knew and we could only understand a little bit more about what
Exhibition runs Mon - Fri til
Transport - The best route is by tube to Kentish Town ( Northern Line) and
then less than 10 minutes walk. Alternatively Camden Town and Camden
Road stations. Parking in local streets after 6.30pm is very limited indeed.
Apologies if you receive this invite via more than one route.
Please feel free to forward this mail onto anyone else you think might be
interested. In the meantime hoping you can come.
With very best wishes and many thanks,
