big news – building will not be demolished till the end of 2008… i wonder if my installation helped make this defferal…

in the mean time:

Open End (open studios at Morning Lane) May 18th-20th, 2007Private View: Friday May 18th, 6 – 9pmOpening Hours Sat-Sun 12 – 6pm In the Summer of 2007, 205a Morning Lane will be demolished to make way for a new City Academy school. The building has been leased by London Borough of Hackney to SPACE for use as artists' studios since 1999.
"Open End" takes this final act in the building's history as the starting point for an Open Studio event with a difference. This time the end of the exhibition will mark the end of each artists working relationship with their studio.
The work exhibited by each artist represents a personal response to this unique situation, and the echo of the different practises and people contained within reverberates throughout the show. Some studios are striped bare, with just the work on display. in some the walls are freshly repainted and reconfigured into the "white cube" exhibiting space familiar to the gallery. In others the walls retain the index of the workspace it once was, pockmarked with swatches of misplaced paint, scuff marks and other detritus.
As always there will be a great mix of differing practises and ideas at play but "Open End" promises to be an exuberant final flowering of creativity from the Morning Lane studios, the public are invited to bear witness to this open closing.
