LME (London – Munich Exchange) 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 andperformance.The project ‘Ruins of Time / The Crypt’ is the first 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 the Crypt (St Pancras Church, London) through their works and performances, taking into consideration the specific, historical, architectural and sacral aspects of this site, and its connection to the present, focusing on ideas revolving around time, space and place. Other ideas treated include the connection between location and dislocation, memory and re-visitation, sight and site, disorientation, dissociation and re-finding, and also between destruction, ruins and ‘ruins in reverse’.
The exhibition at Crypt Gallery (26 – 30.11.2015) will offer the public multifocal and multicultural views of place, time and transience, from both British and German perspectives, with the further aim of continuing the dialogue in a subsequent LME group exhibition in Germany.
This project is funded by the City of Munich Department of Arts and Culture.
