Five years, that’s all they’ve got (in common)
Uncommon Ground brings together in one show a mixed group of 20
artists amongst whom is a woman born in the London blitz who found
herself flying US troops to Vietnam, a hockey-playing radio-ham from
Hamburg, a Venezuelan who shared a room with Fidel Castro, a shoe
designer from Stuttgart, a TV Executive who teaches yoga, a Professor
of Engineering and a Russian who worked for Mikhail Gorbachev…and
Uncommon Ground features works of art at the Islington Arts Factory a
converted church that has also been a gym - opposite the entrance
to Holloway Prison. All the artists have responded to this extraordinary
place - its history and location - in their own way, with different pieces
of work that are as interesting and varied as their backgrounds. The
wide range - from painting to photography to performance - includes
an interactive piece tracking the journey each spectator and artist has
made to the place, which will grow during the week of the show.
The artists are in the fourth year of a five-year fine art degree at
Central St Martin’s.
