WAKE (visible tracks of turbulence) interrogates materiality itself, as well as notions of ownership, of collective process and the transmission of ideas. Six artists will work in Dilston Grove sequentially in a series of week-long mini-residencies. At the end of each week the artists’ sculptural engagement with the space will culminate in a performance or installation that will be open to the public. Each artist chose the artist to succeed him or her and each will leave behind their materials and structures for the following artist to inherit and build upon. Picking up where the previous artist left off, each will respond to, recycle and add to what they find, gradually or radically transforming the space. The materials they use will become the binding force, the DNA, creating threads as well as layers, linking the artists who knowingly will inhabit each other’s past and future.

25/26 June: David Cotterell

02/03 July: Carl Von Weiler
