Open Rooms # 17: Today, Tomorrow and Somewhere in between

Thursday 11th November, 6.30pm / livestreamed to Twitch

BOOK HERE

Darryl Georgiou and Rebekah Tolley-Georgiou (Georgiou & Tolley), are lens-based artists and photographers. Their work explores the notion of cultural memory, often examining the psychogeography of ‘how places feel’; the tension between truth, fiction, history, and identity. 

Their new collaboration involves a series of ‘picture poems’ set in Liverpool 8, made in association with Granby residents in the period before, during, and after lockdown. ‘Today, Tomorrow, and Somewhere In-between’ consists of an interlinked array of constructed photo/text/audio works and portraits concerned with people, place, and time.

The project was developed through online participatory workshops, and physical art labs (involving a range of photography-making genres, and image sequencing techniques), that considered notions of individual and collective identity, and what makes a neighbourhood become a ‘home’. Our Open Rooms event will bring together the artists, residents and Open Eye Gallery’s Head of Social Practice for a sharing and reflection of the work made to date and we invite you to join and ask questions via our discord and twitch channel. 

Georgiou & Tolley have exhibited internationally and describe their socially engaged practice, as a “reflective slow burner”, often punctuated with unexpected events ranging from the epic to the everyday. The new work also sees the artists build upon their previous project, ‘The World Lived Here: L8’ (hosted by Granby Four Streets Community Land Trust), as part of Open Eye Gallery’s ‘Culture Shifts’ exhibition programme in 2017.
