Altered States Online

July 5, 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 2, 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.’

Marie Henderson’s Mind

December 19, 2017

‘Marie Henderson’s Mind’ is a new short 3d animated video created for a theatre production at Coronet, Elephant and Castle entitled ‘The Melodramatic Elephant in the Haunted Castle’.

‘A play was performed at the Coronet on 8 November 2017 that told the story of the building through the perspective of a Victorian actress, Marie Henderson, who ran the theatre from 1875-1880. The ghost of Marie Henderson haunted the Coronet in scenes that depicted the building as a cinema and a night club. A cast of 19 actors from the People’s Company based at Southwark Playhouse were directed by John Whelan’.

About The Schauerman Digital Art Prize – Genetic Moo

December 5, 2017

The Scauerman Digital Art Prize is a new prize and part of The London Group Open 2017

The prize went to Sandra Crisp for her experimental video work Remote City (skygardens_towers) which pans through elevated levels of a fragmented and futuristic city featuring sky gardens, and empty high-rise towers that humans appear to have left behind. She says the “hybrid models are textured with borrowed / downloaded visuals and smartphone-camera stills, embedded into their multi-faceted surfaces.” Sandra’s piece is both playful and dark and a really skilful use of 3d and video. We love it.

The selected artwork was shown as part of the London Group Open in November 2017 and the winner received £500. All forms of digital art were considered including video, still image, sound, 3D, web, game art, interactive, installation, VR, electronics, robotics, etc…

This prize is selected by London Group members Genetic Moo (Nicola Schauerman and Tim Pickup). Nicola’s parents, Marie & John Schauerman, were creative throughout their lives and excited by new technology. This award is in memory of their enthusiasm and support.
