Ecologies

with

Fernando Garcia-Dory and Platon Issaias and Godofredo Pereira

Saturday, 21, May, 3 until 6pm

To think ecologically is not so much a matter of protecting existing ecologies, but more importantly, a matter of generating conditions for different ones to emerge and affirm themselves. In this cluster we will look at architecture as a practice that has the ability to give consistency, or even to formalise certain modes of living. 

Fernando Garcia-Dory’s collaborative projects involve using art as a means to precipitate social change, often addressing attitudes towards food production, community and tradition. His projects frequently involve creating a working platform or stage for meetings and discussions on the current situation of a particular aspect of land use or other farming related issue. He is interested in the process of building sustainable communities through collaborative and discursive agro-ecological projects, actions, and cooperatives. Interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes, his work addresses connections and cooperation, from microorganisms to social systems, and from traditional art languages such as drawing to collaborative agroecological projects, actions, and cooperatives. His multi-faceted projects investigate the notion of art as a tool or tactic for action with communities, with a focus on projects involving science and technology or driven by ecological concerns.

Platon Issaias and Godofredo Pereira's talk will be expanded from the studio they teach on the MA Architecture course at the RCA, titled Ecologies of Existence – Architecture and Modes of Living. They are interested in various aspects of living, from emerging modes of production to types of social organisation, of inhabitation or relations to nature, that do not conform to the ossification of social structures, familial relations and psychological imaginaries inherent to neoliberal forms of urban development. What is the role of architecture in giving both material and social consistency to these processes? How can we provide spaces for events to happen by formalising a specific program, or giving visibility to certain communities and their modes of living? In their view, architecture gains its political relevance precisely when it is able to think space and its configurations in terms of living. And it is in this sense that they argue that architecture is a significant category of ecological struggle.

Restaurant Drawings Historic and Contemporary

On the 7th of June 2016 artist Lucinda Rogers will showcase her most important restaurant and food drawings, many commissioned by Britain’s leading newspapers and magazines between 1993 and 2016.

The iconic drawings will be hung on the walls of London’s most emblematic French restaurant, L’Escargot. The showcase will include pieces drawn for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s column for The Telegraph “A Matter of Taste”, which from 1996-2000 featured some of the most notable restaurants in London; Petrus, Marco Pierre White’s Belvedere and The Square.

The exhibition will give guests a snapshot of the 90’s restaurant scene where nouvelle cuisine gave way to the rise of the British chef patron, highlighting some of the top restaurants in Britain. Bringing the subject into the present, to celebrate Soho’s thriving restaurant scene, the show will include new drawings of iconic and enduring Soho venues:  L’Escargot, Bar Italia, Maison Bertaux and others.

Jillian Eldridge

The Rye Creative Centre Arts Programme launches the new year with an exhibition of new paintings from long time resident Jillian Eldridge.

Migrating figures move through landscapes, distilled down to a blurred image, separated from the viewer by an over painted grid.  Images of beauty which suggest a atmosphere of contemplation. Jillian recently held her first solo show in London, "Slipping Away", at the Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch.
