Drawing on the history of gas holders in King’s Cross, the Constellations group will present a series of participatory activities that explore ideas related to public space.
Built in the 1850s, Gasholder No. 8 formed part of Pancras Gasworks, one of the largest gasworks sites in Britain. Reflecting on its transition, from iconic 19th Century industrial structure to residential leisure site with landmark status, the event will invite audiences to consider and engage with a location that is simultaneously public and private.
Constellations is UP Projects and Flat Time House’s annual artist development programme for artists based in the UK. The programme supports artists interested in socio-political issues, community-oriented practice or public contexts to refine existing approaches, or propose new models for collaboration and co-creation.
Presented and curated by UP Projects, in partnership with Flat Time House
With thanks to in-kind venue support by Argent.
