Designed in dialogue with David Panos’s exhibition Time Crystals, Pump House Gallery presents ‘A Dance and Gesture Archive’, where audiences are invited to explore the exhibition’s themes and ideas through gesture, movement and dance. Visitors of all ages can drop in and take part by dancing to their favourite song on camera and recording it in front of a green screen. The final archive of all the videos produced over the course of the project will be displayed during the final two weeks. There will also be a series of free family workshops exploring dance and gesture with a dancer/choreographer, and how fashion and style are important to culture.

Wandsworth Council’s Pump House Gallery presents an exhibition of recent work by artist David Panos. Based on ongoing research into the relation between cultural form, history and memory, the presentation examines the contemporary revisiting of motifs from the 1980s and 1990s, in particular from the ‘alternative’ and ‘rave’ subcultures.

Through the lens of the artist’s personal recollections of the period around 1989 (dubbed by political scientist Francis Fukuyama at the time as ‘The End of History’) the exhibition looks at the ways that fashion, dance and gestures have anticipated and reflected macro political and social change but also hold and transmit shifting meanings across cycles of revival. The work reflects on how twenty-first century digital media, industrialised ‘fast’ fashion and the deepening penetration of institutions into popular cultural histories transform how we might interpret and remember the past.

Bringing together a number of videos and installation elements placed in disruptive relation – ‘authentic’ archival material and digital compositing, choreography and online searches, contemporary club footage and abstract animations – Panos contrasts and collides different registers in a series of inversions that both extend and undermine his own memory and open up the horizon of a different future.

The exhibition is accompanied by a public programme of discussions, performances and activities designed in dialogue with the artist. On Saturday 21 October Misters of Circe and Josh GT will perform live music preceded by a panel discussion on subcultural music movements from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Further dates to be announced on this page. Booking essential.

This exhibition is supported by Wandsworth Council.

How fashion speaks

How fashion speaks

22 October 2017 12-4pm

For our first InHouse family workshop alongside Time Crystals by David Panos, Pump House Gallery invites you to explore how fashion speaks across the decades and think about how trends and styles are an important part of our cultural identity. This free drop-in family workshop will be a fun and interactive way to creatively explore fashion trends through mixing clothing and accessories across the decades to create your own outfit and style. Using our specially crafted cut-outs, visitors can draw, design, colour and dress-up their own characters. Take your character home or add it to our collective display board.

Drop-in workshops for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
