Still from Lumiere and Son, part of the One Minute vol. 7 film series.

Coastal Currents spectacular at DLWP

This Saturday at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill Coastal Currents joins forces with DLWP’s regular event Dear Serge to provide a bonanza of live music, drama, art and film, plus an illuminated bike ride with a fancy-dress electronic twist. Christine Alford lists the pleasures in store.

One Minute vol. 7 Film series on loop in auditorium, 2 to 10pm.

Curated by artist film-maker Kerry Baldry, this is a diverse array of moving images from an eclectic mix of artists. Each piece is constrained to one minute before it switches to another. This is set to be a vibrant backdrop to the whole event.

Clare Whistler – Performance: Do Buildings have Memories? All over the building, 2 to 4pm.

The culmination of a six-day performance that forms an architectural response piece based on compass directions – north, south, east and west. Having been artist-in-residence at DLWP in 1996-2001, Clare reflects on the residency with the realisation that she is overwhelmed with the memories, which lead to the title of the piece.

She has requested seven collaborators from the residency to send her in one direction, each unknown to her.

Christina Yeo-O’Clarey Installation Performance: Canis Lupus and the Logic of Pink Icing, at 3pm, 5pm, 7pm and 9pm.

A multimedia performance using sound, costume and props in an intimate setting that weaves together notions of motherhood, feminine identity and the wilderness. The performer chats to the audience as she pegs clothes to a washing-line on which are hung two huge photographic prints of herself and her dog.

Participants are being sought to take part in this piece. If you would like to reserve a slot to take part in any of the four performances, please email your name and contact number to

Lorah Pierre (DLWP) and Ewa Justika (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam) Light/Noise Performance: A Rupture in the Normal Disposition of Bodies, 7:30 to 8pm.

A collaborative interaction between two geographical locations. With each incremental move, unfamiliar and unpredictable, the performance opens up a dialogue within the continuum that emerges out of this topological dispositioning.

Speak Galactic Live performance, 8:15 to 9pm.

Speak Galactic are an avant rock duo consisting of Owen Thomas (guitar, electronic, vocals) and Jim Morrison (drums), whose sound has been compared to that of Dearhunter and Animal Collective. Progressive, original and spurred on by innovation, the duo will play live on the bandstand.

Eyes that Kill DJ’s  9 to 10pm.

Local band Eyes that Kill DJ’s will bring the event to a close with their brilliant eclectic range of songs.
