Watching a Strange Theatre

Deptford X Gallery  21 Apr - 12 May 2017


Watching a Strange Theatre is a video and sculpture installation that transfers some of the features of the remarkable place of the Old Tidemill Garden – a unique, collaboratively run community space in Deptford – into the vitrine-like gallery space of Deptford X.


The garden has become a principal theatre of vegetal appreciation, wildlife species, habitants and human activities, through its peculiar magic of tranquillity.


Live streaming from the Old Tidemill Garden gives us the chance to see its

active life in real time, giving us the ability

to observe while staying unnoticed. The images will be screened throughout the night when the nocturnal wildlife comes into its own, and the theatre will play host to some unchoreographed activity.


Deptford's wildlife haven has turned from a stage for natural processes like bloom and harvest, death and rebirth, into a scene of another existential drama about the garden's uncertain future. 

Lucie and Karolina were the recipients of the 2016 Deptford X Fringe award, in which they were chosen from around 80 projects to present a show in the DX Gallery in spring 2017.
