Sally Buchan has an installation this week at the Flux Exhibtion

Camden-based multi-media artist Sally Buchanan doesn’t necessarily know what her projects are going to be about, but always knows that they are going to happen. Not surprising then that her contribution to the FLUX Exhibition – this week in the Parade Ground of Chelsea College of the Arts – is called ‘The Inevitable Installation’. Sally talked to Camden Community Radio while she was still on a high from the (not quite finished) work on her sculpture which she hopes will draw people into a space that suggests another world, another dimension. Consisting of ten cubes, each a different colour and constructed with scaffolding and organza that people can walk through or view from outside, the installation plays with shape and colour as overlaps transpose colours and convey different hues. On Monday and Tuesday ‘The Inevitable Installation’ will be assembled (and filmed with a time lapse camera) in situ.

Entry is FREE, Gates open each day at 11am. Chelsea College is next to Tate Britain at 16 John Islip Street, SW1 4UJ.
Bus 88, Pimlico tube station or River bus to Tate Britain.

Interview with Natasha Langridge on In Memory of Leaves

Martin speaks to Natasha Langridge, whose show In Memory of Leaves comes to the Camden canal from the 11th-14th of October.

Written in the wake of her home on the Wornington Green Estate in Kensington being demolished, Natasha Langridge’s monologue explores what happens to communities when they are moved from their homes. It follows her getting arrested with Occupy Democracy and volunteering in the refugee camp in Calais. It is personal and bracing; a love note to neighbours and a revolutionary call to the world.

Natasha Langridge is a Meyer-Whitworth award winner for Shraddha which was performed at Soho Theatre. She is also an actress and is co-author of Rage and Reason Women Playwrights on Playwriting. Her writing and directing credits include Beverley (UK Tour), Breathing in Brixton, The Method (Oval House London) and Worthing Whispers (Pavilion Theatre Worthing).
