‘The London Group, founded in 1913, was formed of an enlarged Camden Town Group, the English Vorticists and other independent artists. Founder members included Wyndham Lewis, Sickert, Bomberg, Gaudier- Brzeska and Epstein who coined The London Group name. Unusually for its time it had women members – from its inception. The Group has shown at least once a year throughout its existence, including during both World Wars and this is our ninth exhibition this year – a record for the Group. We are described by Michael Strain (Art UK, Dec. 2017) as ‘A group of quality and great diversity. Most of the great British artists for more than 100 years have been members’.

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′

Photo 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.
