about the workshop

A Climate Challenge platform, invited artist/researcher Rachel Pimm directed an image & text collage/physics co-making workshop, together with Marietta Mavrokordatou, Korallia Stergides, and Peter Eramian, in which different universes were combined collaboratively to create new transits. Rotations, remixes, and eclipses paralleled equations, mathematical constants, and astrological positions. All were welcome to bring images/texts in either digital/print form that represented their selected universes.

Rachel Pimm (b. Harare, 1984, lives in London) works in sculpture, video and performance to explore environments and their materialities, histories and politics often from the point of view of non-human agents such as plants, minerals, worms, water, gravity or rubber. They are interested in the potential of surfaces and matter to transform. Their work has been included in recent programmes including Hales Gallery, Jerwood Space, ANDOR, Tenderpixel and Chisenhale Gallery, The Royal Academy and Serpentine Gallery (all London 2014-2019) as well as internationally in Europe and the USA. Pimm has an MFA from Goldsmiths and lectures in Fine Art at Camberwell College and is the current writer in residence at Whitechapel gallery where the exhibition Plates can be seen until April 19th.
