Architecture is a visual representation of the movement of time, and a vessel that stores memories. It is for this reason that it cannot only be seen as an integral aspect of forming and maintaining communities but throughout history it is also evidence of evolving cultural landscapes.
During this one hour tour, animator and experimental filmmaker, Mary Martins will take you on a journey that explores the interior and exterior of the Brixton Recreation Centre revealing the discoveries and findings from her research that focuses on the intersections of architecture with urban landscapes and how this forms a sense community. This research is currently informing the production of her most recent animated documentary, Queen of the South (2023).
This project is supported by CIRCA (Cultural Institute for Radical and Contemporary Arts).
