A pop-up exhibition of work, experiments and presentations by students from the Slade School of Fine Art on Friday 13 May 2016, from 1 - 4pm, part of the ongoing Rock Room Project.
This year's Rock Room Projects comes under the theme of "Poison" and will be a 1-day pop-up exhibition at the UCL Rock Room on Friday 13th May 2016. In addition we will be holding a Workshop on Poison on Wednesday 11th May, with Nicola Pozzani (Fragrance educator at LCF, UAL and Bern University of the Arts, CH, and bespoke perfumer at Floris, London) and Gary Tarbuck (UCL Earth Sciences/Geochemistry).
We are thinking of ‘poison’ in its material, metaphorical and fictional manifestation within both the ‘hard’ and the ‘soft’ sciences, art, music, literature, etc. The subject is looking at how something small and invisible can be or become a very powerful force. Poison is becoming an example of material being potent, and of thinking about material and sculpture through all the senses.
The Rock Room Project is a research and exhibition project based in Graduate Sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Art. The project aims to explore spaces that represent other forms of logic, beliefs, knowledge and disciplines such as architecture, geology, botany or applied art. This revolves around attempts to find new forms of exhibition making, to question the very idea of exhibiting and to look at the potential of collaboration.
