' hold me beside you ' A Site Specific Installation at Plymouth Art Weekender, 24 -27 September 2020

hold me beside you is a unique installation by Still/Moving for this year's Plymouth Art Weekender: 24 -27 September 2020.

The 2-metre distanced illuminated words respond to the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. The site-specific installation explores the tension of proximity and risk in the physical structure of the Plymouth Citadel’s former gunpowder store. Originally created for The Box's 'State of Emergency' micro commission the words have been reconfigured to magnify our state of isolation and our dependence: our need to keep distanced, coupled with our longing for interconnectedness, revealing a shared vulnerability in the face of the unknown workings of the virus.


The work hangs on the north wall of Duttons Cafe, located above Elphinstone carpark which is one of the best places to see Still/Moving's other project Speedwell, on the Mount Batten Breakwater.

Speedwell is Live!

Speedwell is exploring the idea of 'no new worlds'.

For the settlers on the Mayflower who felt they were sailing to a new world, it was a world that had been inhabited for many thousands of years by indigenous peoples who were greatly impacted by the arrival of the Mayflower and subsequent ships that followed.

We wanted to challenge that idea and to uncover previously overlooked stories of the Mayflower sailing but also to remind people that we only have this world and we need to look after it.

Come and add your voice to the structure either by filling in a tag with one of our volunteers or by adding your voice on our text and audio link

'touch' by Still/Moving, "A State of Emergency Commission" by The Box, Plymouth's new Museum

Still/Moving have been awarded a State of Emergency Commission by The Box, Plymouth's new museum, art gallery and cultural centre. The project titled 'touch' explores the two metre distance of safety forced under the pandemic regulations, a distance which paradoxically shows care through remoteness while enforcing isolation, yet in cases of coercion, hides from view those subject to a cruelty of touch.

The work explores these spaces, navigating from the distance of the horizon to the proximity of the home; the local. Moving through levels of intimacy and forms of touch from the caress of a lover, the lifting of a child to sharing a companionable proximity, the phrases ‘HOLD ME’, ‘TOUCH ME’, ‘BESIDE ME’ will be created using a low voltage LED technology.

The Box will open to the general public on Tuesday 29 September

Léonie Hampton commissioned to create new work in response to seeds in Exeter Museum, RAMM’s collection

Still/Moving's co-founder Leonie Hampton new commission from RAMM, will explore the Exeter museum’s collection of seeds and herbarium sheets in dialogue with her own photographs of seed experiments, the garden and family. Creating a ‘story about love, growth, family and the archaic wisdom of plants’ the new artwork will place Hampton’s photographs of living and growing plants alongside that of the collected, dried seeds in the museum.

See: RAMM Museum for more info

About

People and place are at the core of our individual and shared practices. Still/Moving is a platform for creative activities and projects to develop.


Here or there does not matter
We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion
Through the dark cold and the empty desolation,
The wave cry, the wind cry, the vast waters
Of the petrel and the porpoise. In my end is my beginning.

T. S. Eliot, "East Coker," from The Four Quartets

Still/Moving is composed of three artists, Laura Hopes, Martin Hampton and Léonie Hampton, who met when they were 13. Living in Devon, UK, their collective practice aims to create social and environmental change through questioning established modes of thinking and behaviour. Projects are developed through a process of collaborative and participatory dialogue and activity between each other and with partner communities. Inspired by the artist Louise Bourgeois who said ‘It is not about the medium, it is about what you are trying to say’, their work emerges in diverse forms, including sculpture, film, photography, performance, installation, the spoken and printed word.

Léonie has an internationally acclaimed fine art practice. She studied Art history specialising in contemporary European and American art and is a part time tutor of MA Photography at LCC London. Martin is an award-winning filmmaker and co-founded Squint/Opera with architect Will Alsop. He studied Architecture at the Bartlett, UCL; specialising in speculative designs for extreme locations such as the moon and intertidal zones. Laura is an artist and AHRC funded PhD candidate. Her research project focuses upon the relationship between climate change and colonisation.

Still/Moving was originally set up for workshops and in-conversations with internationally acclaimed artists. Speedwell is their first major project since incorporating as Still/Moving Projects CIC in 2019.

Léonie Hampton was born in London in 1978. She lives and works in Devon, UK. Her artistic practice aims to shine light into areas of personal and collective trauma, in an attempt to heal and create change.

After graduating in Art History at University College London and SOAS in 2000, she continued her studies in Photography at the London College of Communication.

She has exhibited in solo and group shows in the U.K. France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, Austria, Italy and Canada. Successive photo-based projects have been funded by Wellcome Trust and the British Council and her 16-part photo installation was acquired for the permanent collection of the MEP (Maison Européenne de la Photographie - Ville de Paris) in 2008. In 2011, her award-winning 184-page book In the shadow of things was published by Contrasto (Italy).

Léonie is a part-time teacher for MA Documentary Photography at London College of Communication.

Alongside her work within Still/Moving she is currently working on an Arts Council England funded film project Islands of Women, due to be shown as part of a Rose Gibbs curation at the Whitechapel Gallery London, in 2021. In July 2020 she was commissioned by RAMM in Exeter to make a new body of work, A Language of Seeds, due to be exhibited there in February 2021.

Laura Hopes

www.laurahopes.com

laura@stillmoving.org


Laura Hopes is in the closing stages of an Artistic Practice Research AHRC-funded PhD with the University of Plymouth entitled Being Vulnerable: Distances of the Sublime Anthropocene. Her research project focuses upon the relationship between climate change and colonisation. She explores a methodology built around the idea of the ‘vulnerable practitioner’, focusing upon a process of decolonising the Anthropocene. Drawing from existing and historic modes of knowledge; open to failure; seeking collaboration and acceptant of unknowns; her practice has become a much slower, lengthier process, where assumptions are constantly challenged - obstacles to be unpicked. Through extensive collaboration within the collective Still/Moving and with academics and experts in diverse fields, her expanded practice encompasses writing, conversations, film, performance, installation and multi-disciplinary exchange.

Martin Hampton

www.martinhampton.com (documentary film)

www.squintopera.com (architectural animation)

www.not-applicable.org (music + image improvisations)

martin@stillmoving.org


Martin Hampton studied Architecture at the Bartlett, UCL. Specialising in speculative designs in extreme locations, he designed an architecture for the moon, and imagined floating structures for tidal zones that would reconfigure themselves twice a day.

He co-founded Squint/Opera with architect Will Alsop, a production studio that uses film to communicate radical architectural ideas. One of their first films, Picture a City, was acquired by MOMA New York jointly by the film and architecture departments.

Since 2006 Martin has worked independently as a director, making films about artists for Tate, Christies, and Whitechapel Art Gallery, bringing together his interest in challenging art with a desire to communicate. This has led to inspiring encounters with world renowned artists such as Gerhard Richter, Nan Goldin and William Klein. In 2008, in a move towards documentary filmmaking, he completed an MA in Visual Anthropology at Goldsmiths College London, and his graduation film Possessed won support from the British Council and awards at several international film festivals including Emir Kusturica’s Kustendorf Film Festival. In tandem with his client-based work, Martin maintains an independent film practice. Projects include Gentle Oblivion, a long term investigation of his sister’s experience of Alzheimer’s Disease, and DreamWalking, a film about the Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi.

Still/Moving provides an opportunity for Martin to bring together his diverse interests and skills, whereby the lived experience of a structure and its form are conceived as a dynamic whole.

At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;

Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,

But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,

Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,

Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,

There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.

T. S. Eliot
