Video: Seymour Art Collective – re-projecting (london) – with Ricardo Basbaum and The Showroom

I was involved with this project through City of Westminster College. Working with The Showroom via Seymour Art Collective we took a dérive around the part of London in which the group is based, the basis for an alternative guided walk of the area.

Documentation of a walk by Seymour Art Collective as part of ‘re-projecting (london)’, a project at The Showroom by Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum. Point 4 of the ‘re-projecting (london)’ diagram fell near the West London Day Centre on Seymour Place, which provides essential services for homeless people in Westminster. In 2011, The Showroom met with a group of artists who meet weekly at the Centre, and have since continued a dialogue and working relationship. For the project members of the Collective met regularly over the period of several months, they researched and walked the ‘re-projecting (london)’ diagram as a way to develop work around ideas of collectivity, public space, recorded and personal histories in relation to place and the potentials of the concept of dérive.
