Into the Fold, Camberwell
The second iteration of Camberwell Press’ bi-annual event
ran across four weeks within the Camberwell College of Arts. A street-fronting
space was reworked to form a flexible area capable of hosting studio activity,
workshops, panel discussions and a culminating exhibition.
The practice designed furniture to be light and reconfigurable with an
undulating ribbon of chalkboard and pentagonal tables emulating the ad hoc informal
arrangement of a studio. Their ability to shift and tessellate offered a second
formal crystallisation as gallery.
Materials were selected that would support the production of a palimpsest of
activity as the event progressed, with the chalkboard tables bearing the
scribed marks of preceding workshops and the wall panelling the pinned imagery
and texts of another.
