Ruins Of Time

RUINS OF TIME / ASYLUM Upcoming exhibition RUINS OF TIME / ASYLUM in Asylum Chapel, Caroline Gardens, Asylum Road, London, SE15 2SQ Open to Public: 29 March - 30 March, 10 am - 7 pm; 31 March, 10 am - 6 pm Artists from Britain and Germany continue their joint project 'Ruins of Time', exhibiting both in London and Munich over the next few years. Developed by London-Munich Exchange [LME], directed by Eleonora Bourmistrov and Milena Michalski, 'Ruins of Time' introduces its next exhibition, this time at Asylum Chapel, Caroline Gardens, London, in March 2017; the first exhibition was at the Crypt Gallery, St. Pancras, London in November 2015 and was funded by City of Munich Department of Arts and Culture. LME is an international group of artists based in Britain and Germany, working in a variety of media, ranging from sculpture, painting and installation to photography, time-based media and performance. 'Ruins of Time / Asylum' is the latest in the LME series of projects exploring the passage of time and its specific expression in the architecture of the site. Engaged in a collaborative process, the LME artists will respond to Asylum through their works and performances, taking into consideration the specific, historical, architectural and other aspects of this site, and its connection to the present, focusing on ideas revolving around time passing, decay and ruin, expressed in space and place. Other ideas treated include mental illness and its institutional sheltering, political and social protection and its failure, different forms of refuge, disorientation, dissociation and dislocation. In addition to this, the notion of Asylum as a 'heterotopic space' is reflected through the exhibition's framing within Foucault's philosophical concept of 'heterotopia' as non-hegemonic spaces of otherness. The Asylum exhibition offers the public multifocal and multicultural views of many of the overarching concepts of the 'Ruins of Time' project, from both British and German perspectives, with the dialogue continuing in subsequent LME group exhibitions in Germany and Great Britain.

The Suffocating Truth

Acclaimed contemporary dancer and choreographer Lukas McFarlane will bring a thought-provoking, dramatic production about sexuality to the UK this February and March. The Suffocating Truth aims to encourage young people to engage with their sexuality. The intimate performance, inspired by contemporary issues and personal stories, follows the dancers on their journey to acceptance and self-discovery through gender and sexuality. With no fourth wall between audience and stage, the public will be part of the dancers' struggle to find acceptance as they explore their sexuality and discover that every lesson learnt brings them closer to true happiness in a darkly intense and personal performance.
