Photos from the Heavy Sentience exhibition at Brixton art studios / gallery space Block 336. All of the artists involved produced new work in direct response to the building and to working with each other.
Our recent unit at college about installation art was taught by one of the artists – CJ Mahony – showing there and I was curious to see her work.
“Built in 1967, the Brutalist building that houses Block 336 was originally designed as a warehouse, and has subsequently hosted a number of state, private and religious enterprises. It has also been cited as a venue for illegal raves before its conversion in 1984. Located within the basement, Block 336 even retains the cooling system for some of the first generation computers used by Coutts Bank, which occupied the site in the 1970s.”
