HOPE ON THE HORIZON

Is an interactive and 

evolving installation 

that inspires thoughts, ideas and participation

It was created in collaboration with members from the Bristol Artist-Led Forum and the visiting public.
As part of  'forevolution' at the
Centre of Gravity exhibition in Bristol 2020.

Bristol Artist-Led Forum members explored the possibilities for positive social change driven by creativity, connectivity, culture and community building. BA-LF created a show that put social engagement, diverse communities and inclusive participation at its heart.

Presenting sculpture, video and audio, installations, performance, murals, research and talks, BA-LF aimed to unite and share stories of Bristolians from the margins to the centre. The show changed and grew over the duration of the exhibition, with many people adding their voices. #whatdoesabetterworldlooklike

Centre of Gravity is an innovative project that brings contemporary visual arts communities together. Through a collaboration with developer First Base, Centre of Gravity made use of around 30,000sq ft of derelict space that was once an old soapworts but for the last 60 years has been warehousing for the huge home store Gardiner Haskins.
The exhibition ran for the month of October 2020 showing work from over 60 artists and curators plus many more through a wide programme of events, performances, key research projects and symposia.  The visitor numbers were 4400 people and the developers wanted to extend the show, unfortunately the next lock down prevented this.
The film below is a playful documentation of the period of time between first visiting the vacated Gardiner Haskins buildings in July 2020, where we also had access to the massive shops floors, through the set up of the exhibition, to the opening of the Centre of Gravity Exhibition on the 2nd Oct 2020.
For those that are interested : This film was predominately shot as stills and then made use of the 'live' video element that now exists on many smart phones when shooting stills.
This means the approach to capturing the images was very different to ‘filming'.
