Walthamstow Wetlands Field Trip

For the third event in our current project, womb to web (human/nonhuman entanglements #2), we will embark on a field trip facilitated by artist Barbara Gamper and guest curator Ingrid Berthon-Moine.

We will explore the aquatic terrain of the Walthamstow Wetlands, taking breaks for small stretches to engage with our bodies and the liquidity around us. We will discuss some of the texts from a reader compiled by Barbara Gamper and Ingrid Berthon-Moine that informs the research of the project and expands on some of the central concepts around care, power, partnership and fluidity.

The field trip is free but please confirm your interest at as spaces are limited. This is on off-site event and we will meet at the Engine House Cafe, 2 Forest Rd, London N17 9NH. Nearest Tube station Tottenham Hale (10mins walk).

This project forms part of a series of collaborative acts where KELDER will work with artists, curators, educators, institutions and writers to take the role of guest curator in order to realise a collaborative project.

Our first guest curator is the artist, Ingrid Berthon-Moine who works  across sculpture, photography and installation. She addresses concerns around the representation of gender relations and gender narratives through her practice.
Barbara Gamper’s practice lies at the intersection of somatic bodywork, performance, moving image and textiles. The body holds a central role in her process of making. Gamper is interested in its archival layers of experience, emotion and sensation – the inert knowledge inscribed at the level of bones and muscles – and in the process of connecting and unearthing these. She graduated in 2016 with an MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London. Recent exhibitions include ‘Run the World (girls)’, Galleria Doris Ghetta, Pontives (2019); ‘At the level of the bone’, Chalton Gallery (2018); ‘Cellular Breathing (toward fluid bodies and autotelic experience’, Galerie Andreas Schmidt, Berlin (2018) and ‘We Move in Her Way’ by Sonia Boyce, ICA, London (2016).
