Interrupting the City

11 June 2016


Venue: Meet at: Battersea Park Train Station, London SW8

Organiser: Jessica Dolby

Jessica is an artist currently living and working in the North East. Her practice explores psychogeography, maps & the psyche, and she uses drawing as a tool to investigate walking, space and site.

Let’s play.

By using dice and pre-prepared ‘tasks’ we will explore, re-define & interrupt the surroundings of Battersea and Nine Elms.

This area is undergoing a monumental transformation: 20,000 new luxury apartments, shops, offices and £30 million penthouses being built into a ‘Dubai-On-Thames’. This redevelopment of an area that was previously wasteland and warehouses is one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe.

Undoubtedly, this will have an impact on the surroundings, people and communities.

The game we will play will take us on a détournement of the area and offer us an opportunity to hijack the space, open up debate and share our thoughts.

Dress for the weather; bring a drink & a snack if you wish. After the event we can pop somewhere for a drink and a chance to reflect.
