The PAN exhibition reviewer, James Claydon, has been out and about for us again at another private view, this time on the South Bank of London at an interesting new installation at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf where Emergence Magazine is presenting SHIFTING LANDSCAPES, a unique new immersive exhibition featuring works by nine international artists, open for a limited ten-day run from 1-10 December 2023.
James reported for PAN: “What a great show! – Shifting Landscapes presents a breathtaking series of works by nine incredible artists. Standout pieces include Sanctuaries of Silence by Adam Loften and Emmanuel Vaughn-Lee which takes the participant into an almost hallucinatory world devoid of human sound.”
“Breathing with the Forest is a dreamlike experience that demonstrates the interconnectivity of nature while taking the viewer into an almost underwater like perspective.”
Curated by Emmy and Peabody award-nominated filmmaker and composer and Emergence Magazine founder, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, Shifting Landscapes will be held at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, the multistory, industrial exhibition space in the heart of the cultural hub of London’s South Bank.
Bringing to life Emergence Magazine’s editorial exploration of the theme of shifting landscapes, the exhibition contemplates our changing Earth during the current moment of loss, possibility, and transformation. Featuring the work of Adam Loften, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, Gheorghe Popa, Kalyanee Mam, Katie Holten, Kiliii Yüyan, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Studio Airport and Zied Ben Romdhane, the exhibition brings viewers an experience of the changing Arctic, poisoned rivers, a threatened rainforest in the Amazon, a lost world built on dredged sand and the shifting sounds of the Earth.
The exhibition is highly interactive, containing sensory installations, soundscapes, large-scale photographic works, and film. UK experiential art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast will premiere their new large-scale video and audio installation, Breathing with the Forest, inviting viewers into an experience of deep continuity and reciprocity with the Amazon rainforest. This is realized through a breath-based, open-eyed meditation that connects viewers to the relationships that exist with the forest ecosystem. A procession of trees and their shifting landscapes remind us of the great loss and possibility that exists within this moment.
PAN: Thanks again James!
