___________________________________________
Over the last three years, the collaboration of Welsh-German artists Awst & Walther has resulted in installations and performances that fuse the personal myths and fundamental themes of human existence. Unfinished Realities continues this work, revealing to the public an enchanted sphere of enquiry and ritual.

Deploying a palette of fragile materials – gelatine, ice, gold, glass and feathers – and a strong will to investigate rather than to perform, Awst & Walther present a material language and philosophy that is synonymous with their particular life circumstances and togetherness.

The second part of Unfinished Realities will take place in February 2009, with an exhibition of paintings and drawings.

For an account of last year’s successful walks see Creative Developments – Re-using old buildings
________________________________________________
London Open House Weekend
Peckham Central walks
Led by The Peckham Society
See some usually hidden parts of central Peckham: a walk between and around the recently listed Peckham Rye Station, the Bussey former cricket bat factory, the Hannah Barry Gallery, the Old Mill building, and more, all demonstrating the potential for re-using historic industrial buildings.
This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the spectacular views from the roof of the Bussey building, see how that building and some of the adjacent buildings on the site are significant Peckham assets and have great potential for the emergent Copeland Cultural Quarter (CCQ). Visit the Peckham Vision exhibition and see the growing collection of images and plans illustrating ways in which the CCQ and the other areas around Rye Lane can become a more integrated collection of linked public spaces and buildings.
