To Make Art Happen - 06.04.18

Date: 6th April 2018

On the 6th April at Safehouse 1, David and Ruwanthie's new collaborative work, OnSilent, will be shown as part of the exhibition, To make art happen.

The show is the first of three international art exhibitions that will take place in London in 2018 and 2019. Twenty-eight artists from seven different countries are taking part in the project, from Iceland, UK, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Ireland and Canada. All three exhibitions will highlight the multiple manifestations of time in art. The first exhibition, titled ‘To make art happen’, brings together artists that deal with the presence of time in their work, or who regard their work as performative. To encourage discourse with and amongst the audience there will be live performances at all three openings.

The artists in the first exhibition are: Thoroddur Bjarnason, Darri Lorenzen, Snorri Ásmundsson, Sara Bjornsdottir, Saemundur Thor Helgason, Frederique Pisuisse, Hatty Lee, David Cotterrell and Ruwanthie de Chickera, Kevin Atherton, Libia Castro and Olafur Olafsson.
