Splash Waterfalls

9 March – 24 March 2012



A space to celebrate the banishment of the contemporary art void in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. A baptism of energy, light and sound, the arena of the gallery space provides a contemplative zone for performances, discussion and ceremonial art making.
With the element of Water as the theme for the show, as a symbol of our evolutionary birthing pool on planet earth, we want to address notions of cultural rebirth, regeneration, baptism and the risk involved in high budget cultural projects, as represented by Kevin Costner’s 1995 epic Waterworld.
