Over Time art project

The final (for now!) event in the Over time art project takes place this Sunday at Royal Museums, Greenwich with a whole day of performance, film, sound and more.. featuring new films about the Thames foreshore and performances in the Queen’s House.

This is the culmination of a six month long project which engaged eleven contemporary artists:  in making ‘time pieces’ in a place that is about to change forever… the Greenwich foreshore. Each of the artists has responded to spending precisely the same fixed amount of ‘clock time’ (five hours without watches or phones) in the very historically resonant and atmospheric riverside space at Enderby’s Wharf, site of the first underwater telegraph cables. This is a site marked by time as industrial history, social development and the natural rhythms of the tides. Works have included sound, movement, performance, film, drawing, writing, conceptual objects and more.

Time Travel probably isn’t possible, we just keep on moving forward, but we all experience the tick tock of passing seconds and minutes in different ways. Time can be elastic and sometimes art can stop us in our tracks.This project is a way to explore time in a place that is already marked by time.. by the natural rhythms of weather and tides, the marks of our London ancestors, of industrial heritage and the rapid progress of city development.

The initial part of the project took place over the Thames Festival weekend:13th and 14th September, with art and performance events on and around the foreshore and was followed by a month long art exhibition in the Stephen Lawrence Gallery at the Old Royal Naval College. The project  is curated by visual artist Anne Robinson who teaches film at London Met University and has curated ‘One More Time’ project and Supernormal Festival, working in collaboration with David Waterworth at the Greenwich University Gallery and the project is supported by Arts Council England and Royal Museums Greenwich.
