on corner of Surrey St

near Somerset House

A London tube station is briefly yours. Aldwych (The Strand) disused tube station is the site of an exhibition of contemporary art. The place and the group are wholly artist selected. Working with the space, the associated familiarity, thoughts, and memories of the place are opened out in this sympathetic show of works made especially for Aldwych by six artists: Maren Juell Kristensen, Rebecca Harris, Robin Peters, Morten Riise-Hanssen, Ana Vicente, Dorothy Szulc. You must not miss this unique encounter with our shared experiences of London life and time.

Stranded Exhibitions is an artists group making work especially for a chosen space. The artists are very different and have different motivations and concerns, but are bound together by the shared feeling for the space and its familiarities. The space alone holds the work together in both a physical and an aesthetic frame. Sculpture, light, sound, photography, drawing and video sit together in the environment, not overwhelming it, but working with it.
