The Encampment of Eternal Hope is a major new sculptural installation by Zoë Walker & Neil Bromwich extending their enquiry into the role of art as an active agent for transformation in society. Taking apocalyptic predictions for 21 December 2012, the end date for the Mayan Calendar, as an imaginative catalyst, the project envisages a post-apocalyptic utopian community, a kind of ‘garden of earthly delights’.
The first solo exhibition in the UK of Yugoslav-born Bojan Fajfrić includes the major recent work Theta Rhythm 2010. A film and installation, it examines the intersection between personal and collective memory.
