Altered States Online

July 05, 2018

‘Following on from our successful exhibition of artists’ moving image at this year’s Waterloo Festival we have built an online channel bringing together the 22 films for you to enjoy. Altered States took place June 11th-18th 2018 at The Crypt of St John’s Waterloo, London SE1 8TY as part of Waterloo Festival 2018

The ALTERED STATES CHANNEL  will run until 30 Sept 2018′

Photographs of Altered States preview evening by Eleanor Bentall

‘Altered States was part of this year’s Waterloo Festival, borrowing its title from the 1980 science fiction movie of the same name directed by Ken Russell. In this a scientist submerges himself into a sensory deprivation chamber and partakes of hallucinogenic drugs in an attempt to access new states of consciousness. As time passes, his grip on reality begins to slip away…

The works explore altered states in a variety of contexts, from perceptual, psychological and philosophical to societal, technological and geographical and encompass a broad range of moving image practice, ranging from video collage and hand drawn animation, to documentary, flicker films, performance and CGI.

Artists include members of the London Group, invited artists and artists chosen from an open call in response to the title.’

Artists:  Bonnie Begusch, Bryan Benge LG, Sandra Crisp LG, Mark Dean, Mellissa Fisher, Eric Fong LG, Susan Francis, Genetic Moo LG, Georgie Grace, Inger Lise Hansen, Daria Jelonek, Debbie Lee, Amanda Loomes LG, Daniel McKee, Laura Moreton-Griffiths, Svetlana Ochkovskaya, Piotr Piasta, Eda Sarman, Katrina Stamatopoulos and Alexandra Spence, David Theobald LG and Joe Vallory, Charlie Tweed and Ubiqk (Peter Gudynas).

Curated by London Group members David Theobald and Genetic Moo.

London Group member

May 02, 2018

Delighted to be elected as new member of The London Group. Thanks to Genetic Moo for their nomination and kind support, and to the selection committee.

‘The London Group is a thriving democratic artists’ collective practicing in all disciplines, from painting and sculpture to moving image, digital and performance, with a full annual events programme in London and beyond – the Group regularly shows abroad. The London Group currently holds many of its events at The Cello Factory, Waterloo, London.

The UK’s longest-running and most prestigious artists’ collective
The London Group was set up in 1913 by thirty two artists including Walter Sickert, Jacob Epstein, Wyndham Lewis, David Bomberg, and Henri Gaudier Brzeska, with the aim of creating a powerful artist-run group to act as a counter-balance to institutions such as the Royal Academy. The founding group created a unique structure for an organisation, that has gone on to successfully nurture the careers of many of Britain’s best-known artists.’
