London Villages Project: October Update

The workshop entitled ‘Editing your personal project’ took place this month and lot of ground was covered regarding the formal aspects of editing, the nature of the LVP, discussion of individual projects and issues that might be addressed in this final third of the Project.

At the monthly meeting the following participants presented work:

Sophie Preston presented her first excursion through Sidcup, her work illustrating historical layers of the built fabric, gentrification and high street commercial turbulance.
Angelika Berndt brought her latest work from the Barbican which showed a burgeoning confidence in representing both interior images and the purposes of the multiple spaces of the complex including from the position of private residents.
Lucilla Nitto has been working close by the Westway from Portobello Road market, along the canal from Westbourne Park towards Ladbroke Grove taking in carnival & the multiplying uses of the space beneath the flyover.
Sara Masaglia showed work in Tottenham featuring the multiple layers and uses both of commercial and private properties and their repurposing.
Mo Greig has been working with vulnerable residents in Kings Cross whom are susceptible to physical or emotional attack or harm. Her work illustrated the communality and self-support of these residents.

Over the next few weeks the organisers of LVP intend to gain a clearer view of how each personal project is going and how many members will be involved in the post-Project activity.
