Description

On April 15th 2017, over 100 people gathered at dusk by the foot of the towers on Southmere Lake to make a large-scale portrait of South Thamesmead, featuring those who live here.
This is the tenth Crowd Theory project by artist Simon Terrill. The works are photographic and performance based events with crowds, communities and the spaces they occupy. The project’s point of departure is a photographic reinterpretation of 16th century Bruegel paintings. The interest is in a performative photography where participants, in a location of personal significance, are asked to inhabit an idea of how communities are imagined. In addition, the works are concerned with what may constitute the difference between a community and a crowd. The events are carefully stage-managed public operations that involve many collaborators and are a collective effort in coordinating lighting, soundtracks, cameras, catering, marshalling and a smoke machine.
