Acts of Searching Closely



Acts of Searching Closely will be a functioning ‘centre for research’ installed within Artists Studio Company (ASC) Gallery 2–11 November 2016. The space will function as a base for participants and visitors to respond to the questions; How do you fill a space? How will we remember now? As curators we are interested in exploring how these questions can highlight issues and tensions relating to space and memory.

We are looking for individuals and groups who are interested in responding to these research questions. Contributions could take the form of, but are not limited to; objects, installation, event, workshop, activity, performance, meal, walk, talk, discussion, debate, reading, film screening, Skype conversation or other.

Are you interested in working with us? Please contact us at Alternatively, if you're able to provide detailed information about your project, please do so via this link:

We have developed the research questions in response to the context in which ASC Gallery finds itself. Recently relocated, the gallery is now situated in the Aylesbury – a site of accelerated physical and social transformation. The curators are interested in work and practice that engages specifically and/or speculatively with the South London context.

Acts of Searching Closely and all related events will be open to all, free of charge. Visitors will also be invited to ask the curators and individuals working in the space alternative research questions.

The research and outcomes resulting from the program will be documented in a public facing repository. All work will be credited.

Please note we have a limited budget and as such cannot pay fees to those involved. We hope to be able to cover the cost of materials related to events, works and activities to ensure our collaborators are not out of pocket. Where possible, please assist us in providing as much detail about your work as possible so that we are able to assess its suitability to this project.

We look forward to hearing from you and will be in touch to discuss the suitability of your proposal to the project.
