Project News: Slice

Slice artists walking the mile-long area between Liverpool St Station and Whitechapel Station, East London

Today TBC artists Beverley Bennett, Charley Peters, Laura Davidson and Paul Mendez met with the other London-based artists involved in the Slice project, a collaborative venture between the UK and Pakistan. The day involved field research into the area of London which will be the inspiration for the generation of new works for the project, and a web conference with the artists based in Lahore.

An important part of the day's activities was the selection of the part of the 'slice' of east London that each commissioned artist or group will be working with. TBC will be based in Catherine Wheel Alley, a narrow passageway leading off Bishopsgate to the east. Over the next two months TBC will be undertaking research into the area before they start work in the space generating a body of site-specific and performative drawings.

The new work will be exhibited as part of an interactive installation in the autumn at the Ideas Store and Rich Mix in London, and the National College of Arts, Lahore. TBC will also produce two publications documenting the work that they make and the processes involved in its production - one copy to be housed at a cultural institution in London an one in an equivalent archive in Lahore.
