Gail Dickerson: Core Sample Exhibition
An Art and Geology project focusing on the geology of London and the area of Elephant and Castle. It explores the Rockingham Street Anomaly, the Elephant Park building site, the fluvial deposits from the River Thames and the clay and chalk of the London Basin. Layers in the work are placed using collected sediments made into earth pigments, and temporary exposures on a building site are captured on film. London’s strata is glimpsed through research and collaboration with the London Geodiversity Partnership.
An exhibition by BEAM Art; a group run by Southwark Disablement Association (SDA). BEAM Art offers ‘disabled artists the chance to create art in a group setting with the opportunity for discussion, conversation and learning from each other in a fully accessible environment.’
The Academy has been working in partnership with SDA to support the BEAM Art programme for over 3 years. Art Academy students Emily Russell and Jo Holt have been working in conjunction with the artists to present an exhibition that reflects the diversity of their practices, which include painting, print and poetry.
