In partnership with Gasworks

So remember the liquid ground is a programme of meditative and sensorial experiences crossing over the digital, physical and spiritual realms. 

Responding to and expanding from the hidden or forgotten social histories and ecologies of Vauxhall in London, the programme has been inspired by the secret and suppressed River Effra which flows underneath South London. The notion of the river acts as a way to re-imagine, to navigate, to feel, and synchronise with our surroundings. 

The programme also includes a Reading Room that acts as a circadian space for collective imagining and reflection on the body, with contributions from Clay AD, Helga Schmid, Ignota, PaperWork Magazine and NXS. 

Over the week of the 15 June performances and events will be presented online and will include: Myriam Lefkowitz's Remote Dances in collaboration with the dancer and performer Julie Laporte, Anna Nazo's Undulation (2020) and Zoë Marden's Mermainia: Tales of Tentacularity (2020). Dates and times will be announced soon. 

A physical manifestation of the project will be launched in autumn 2020 in the wider area of Vauxhall. 


This project is one of the Royal College of Art Curating Contemporary Art Shows 2020. MA Curating Contemporary Art (CCA) graduating students will present five final projects in collaboration with leading UK based art organisations GasworksFurtherfieldOpen School EastNottingham Contemporary and Team London Bridge.

The CCA 2020 projects will also be part of RCA2020, launching 16 July.
