Faisal Abdu’Allah: A Participatory Project

As part of the Katherine Low Settlement's 90th birthday celebrations Pump House Gallery presents Faisal Abdu’Allah: A Participatory Project featuring Faisal Abdu’Allah and current and past members of the Battersea charity. The works produced as part of this project are displayed alongside a series of portrait photographs by Linda Hackett consisting of unknown subjects identified only by their surroundings.

This Exhibition presents work that explores the relationship between people and place and the personal and the collective. By exploring the history of Katherine Low Settlement through the memories of current and past members the project seeks to reveal new narratives within the diverse social make-up of the area.

Through a series of workshops at the Katherine Low Settlement centre, Abdu’Allah works with the members to open up dialogue about the past experiences of both the area and the centre, giving voice to otherwise silent histories. Touching on themes of identity, place, perception and memory Abdu’Allah utilises thinking, making and dissemination to encourage participants to embrace uncertainty and think critically about their place in society.

This exhibition is a touring exhibition produced by Pump House Gallery in collaboration with the Katherine Low Settlement. We are grateful to the American Museum in Bath for the loan of Linda Hackett’s work.

Battersea Gasholders pop up exhibition

28th August 2014

Battersea Gasholders pop-up exhibition

National Grid is dismantling the four disused Battersea gas holders to make way for much needed housing.

Local school children from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, John Burns Primary School, Griffins Primary School and St George’s Church of England Primary School visited the site and learnt about its history and engineering and then worked with professional artist Amy Jayne Hughes to create drawings and sculptures interpreting what they had seen and learnt. A pop-up exhibition is open to the public two days a month across July, August and September 2014. Also on display are a series of industrial portraits by specialist photographer Ben Murphy, who was commissioned by National Grid to take shots of each gas holder dismantling.

3pm - 5pm

The Engineer's House (access via 'The Field' site entrance only (next to the purple history boards)), Battersea Gasholders, Prince of Wales Drive, Battersea, London SW8 4BL
