By the time of closing, The London group ‘In the Dark III – BEING THERE’ exhibition hosted by the The Waterloo Festival at the old crypt, St John’s church, Waterloo, SE1 had received 228 visitors across the week. Including much positive feedback and interesting conversations prompted by the collaborative nature of the exhibition.

Muslin strips are suspended at intervals throughout the length of the long, narrow space and used as transparent projection surfaces for video – Including ‘Weaving in the Dark‘ which appears via 6 different projectors and is fragmented and layered over time on the see – through fabric. As the projectors are all started at different times, different imagery plays out in random ways and combinations from the 38.37 minute video. Sculptures, mobile elements and ephemeral objects also intersect with the projections whilst audio fills the atmospheric and rustic historic space.

A multi-sensory experiment by The London Group organised by Nicola Schauerman, Jockel Liess, Sandra Crisp, Almuth Tebbenhoff, David Theobald and Darren Nisbett

BEING THERE combines and fuses diverse physical objects and digital visual/audio contributions from 42 London Group members into one overarching immersive work of art. A kaleidoscopic experience that not only intertwines the physical with the virtual, but also transcends the boundaries of the individual’s artistic practice.
