On Tenterground

07 July - 31 July

An installation by ciaociao design taking inspiration from tenterground to celebrate Aldgate and its garment industry.

Utilising everyday materials such as scaffold and nylon fabrics which can will be repurposed and recycled, the tenterground will be used as a common ground to host workshops and performances by London Metropolitan University MA Public Art and Performance students to celebrate LFA 2023 theme's In Common throughout July.

Established in the 17th-century by Flemish weavers, Aldgate's tenterground was an area used for drying newly manufactured cloth after fulling. The wet cloth was stretched taut using "tenter hooks", so that it would dry flat and square.

On Tenterground has been commissioned by Aldgate Connect BID for the London Festival of Architecture 2023.
