12th March 6 – 7.30pm

As part of the public programme for his installation ‘genre pain -ting ; An Ode to Brixton’, Andrew Pierre Hart invited a group of artists to engage with the exhibition space through sound and movement, employing a responsive approach to the internal space of the gallery and the wider space that is Brixton as town, as centre

Participants included:

Andrew Pierre Hart (UK)
Andrew Pierre Hart lives and works in London. He explores the symbiotic relationship between sound and painting through ongoing rhythmic research and play between improvised and spontaneous generative processes. His practice questions the many formalities and dialogues around painting. His work explores somatic responses to ideas relating to sound, including but not limited to acoustic levitation, spatialisation, the human as a vessel of sound and the creation of physical and theoretical space. Deeply influenced by music, Hart’s work is a renegotiation of the visual language and legacies of Western abstraction, probing connections between the phenomena, language and representation of sound in painting.

Kamile Ofoeme (UK)
Kamile Ofoeme is a London based multi-disciplinary artist working across audio, visual and performative mediums in order to explore identity, class, place and the built environment. Ofoeme graduated from UCEM’s MSc in Built Environment Studies (BS) in 2021, and Goldsmiths University’s BA in Fine Art and History of Art in 2017.
