The project includes a series of performances, an exhibition, talks and a publication.
Over Time - Eleven artists respond to Enderby's Wharf, a place where time is revealed in the rising and falling of the tide. Soon, this liminal space will be lost forever beneath a concrete jetty.
Go see Enderby's Wharf and the work we have made in response to it, before it's too late.

Over Time is a visual arts project about time passing, curated by Anne Robinson. There are ten artists taking part, working across a range of media including painting, film, performance and animation. Each one will make a response to spending precisely the same fixed amount of ‘clock time‘ in specific stretch of the Thames foreshore around Enderby’s Wharf, during the weeks and months leading into the exhibition/performance period. The work derived from time spent in this historically resonant and atmospheric riverside space will result in a weekend of activities: 13th and 14th September, 2014 and an exhibition at the University of Greenwich 18th September to 16th October There will also be a day of performance and film works at the National Maritime Museum on Sunday 26th October. All of the invited artists are already engaged in some way in working with aspects of temporality, such as perception, elasticity, affect, politics, recording and value.
The space on the foreshore is particularly important to the project because of the richness of the layers of time visible there – the current rapidly changing landscape, the natural markers, the tides and the bend of the river and the industrial heritage and history, including the site where the first underwater telegraph cables were laid. We are also working with local contacts to set up workshops responding directly to this environment in light of imminent changes. The project is being developed in collaboration with Ian Thompson, sound artist based at the University of Greenwich and The Facility Creative Practice as Research group at London Met University. The other confirmed artists are: Rachel Gomme, Ian Thompson, Claudia Firth, Charlie Fox, Sarah Sparkes, The INternational Western Victoria Gray, Katharine Fry and Gavin Maughfling, Jo David and Birgitta Hosea all of whom have outstanding reputations in their various fields, including performance digital animation, dance and sound and have been involved in arts projects of international standing.
