Where Beats This Human Heart – 2010
A disused WWII air raid shelter in Dalston, East London, was the backdrop for this pop-up exhibition. SIB invited 5 artists to react to the unique and challenging space; to its history as a place of sanctuary from the nightly air raids of wartime London, and to its present state as a derelict, defunct and pitch black concrete shell. Each artist developed their work in response to the space and in conversation with each other, using elements of darkness and light, sound, silence and theatre.
Exhibited artists: Sandy Smith, Luke Montgomery, Nelly Ben Hayoun, William Mackrell and Xavier Poultney.
