This coming weekend sees the installation of I knew who I was a group show of site specific work created by 33 artists from Wimbledon College of Art.

The work ranges from sculpture, painting, photography to installation and all have been created in direct response to the Kentish Town Health Centre. The health centre is an NHS centre with GP and dental practice, children’s therapy unit, breast screening service, podiatrists, physiotherapists, aromatherapists, psychologists, art therapists etc. It is a busy place with over 20,000 patients and approximately 450,000 visitors per year. The students were tasked with creating work for the space to reflect its activities as well as ticking many health and safety boxes.

The name of the exhibition I know who I was comes from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. It forms part of a longer sentence ‘I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.’ The artists felt that it was appropriate to their studies; their Masters is a time to take risks, to experiment with their practice and perhaps to change several times. It is also something that rings true with feelings that patients can experience when visiting such a centre. 

For a chance to meet the artists and discuss their work please come along to the open evening on Thursday 28th January 6.30 – 9pm
