HOW TO SWIM -
a series of six contemporary art events in different spaces across the Victoria Baths site. Over the six events artists will react to the site, installing sculptures, paintings and video as well as performing live movement and spoken word pieces, holding workshops and giving talks. These events are organised and curated by WHATCHAMACALLIT collective.
Exhibit A: Trying to Float, is the first in this series and explores collective and social memory. Artist Maddie Broad invites group reminiscence on the theme of swimming in her interactive workshop Standing together in an empty pool, video and sculptural works address collective domestic experience in Ting Waterhouse’s piece Laundry and Polly Maxwell’s Stairs, accompanied by interactive spoken word from poet T.S Idiot.
