Canalology

AtelierFraSe_hires In May 2014 POST presented an exciting one-day public art festival in Tottenham. For Canalology, sixteen artists created new contemporary artworks and projects inspired by canalside Tottenham, alongside a programme of  talks, a workshop and storytelling. This free exhibition took place in public spaces between Markfield Park and Stonebridge Lock and featured site-specific temporary works including sculpture, performance art, drawing, digital animation, installation and architecture.

Artists: Gwen Bajon, James Capper, Olga Koroleva, Fiona Long, Rebecca Leach, Ilka Leukefeld, Samantha Penn, Jenny Rolfe Herbert, Natasha Vicars, Helena Wee, Mary Yacoob, AtelierFraSe and the Unasked-for Public Art Agency (Pippa Koszerek,  Marco Cali, Aliki Kylika).

We are grateful for support from Arts Council England to make this exhibition possible, and appreciate the assistance given by Canal & River Trust.

The major features of the map are the many reservoirs of the Walthamstow Wetlands, which lie in the Lea Valley between Tottenham and Walthamstow, and are a source of drinking water for a large part of London. The canal towpath stands out in yellow, while the roads and railway lines are more muted. Stroke-based textures are used to show the different terrain types. A series of vignettes around the map offer a glimpse of the scenery characteristic of the area – canalboats, allotments, powerlines… […]
