Thanks to all who came yesterday to Brick Project at Turner Contemporary. The talk focused on the production and history of Yellow Stock bricks which are made locally in Kent, they are a distinctive pale yellow colour with various irregularities created during the firing process. 
Today these bricks are produced via an automated process by the Smeed Dean Brick Works in Sittingbourne, this is the last remaining bricks in Kent and the only place in the UK which produces the yellow stock brick. 
Thank you to Smeed Dean Works and Weinerberger for supplying the bricks for the talk.

Talk + Tea
28 February 2013
Is a brick just a brick? Artist Laura Wilson presents her Brick Project, which explores the material’s functions, its relationship to the human body and place in social history, with surprising findings. Free cup of tea with every ticket.

The Brick Project is Wilson’s current research project, supported by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. Wilson taught herself to brick-lay whilst constructing a site-specific structure with 17th century bricks on an archaeological site. She has travelled to China, Peru, the Netherlands and Belgium to investigate the history of bricks and their architectural significance in different cultures and historical periods.

The Brick Project forms part of Wilson’s wider artistic practice.

Café Curio Performance: New Works at Camden Arts Centre on Wednesday 30 January 2013

Cafe Curio Performance: New Works at Camden Arts Centre
Ruth Proctor, Laura Wilson, Marcus Orlandi
Wednesday 30 January, 7.00 - 8.30pm
An evening of performance and film works by young artists, selected to accompany the exhibition, working with the ideas of expanded cinema relating to light, space, film and performance:

Ruth Proctor: Empty Ground
In Empty Ground Ruth Proctor investigates the use of language as code and it’s relationship to the visual.  Using semaphore flags usually associated with traditions of the sea and for conveying information at a distance, the work describes a fragmented conversation between participants through physical movement and repetition in which meaning and image blur; action unravels in front of the audience as sentences translated via subtitling as if a foreign language film or a slowly moving track of a karaoke machine.

Laura Wilson
Wilson presents a new performance developing ideas surrounding the realtionships between the pysical possibilities of light, film and space transforming the gallery space simultaneously into both projector and screen.

Marcus Orlandi
Orlandi's new work is a theatrical meditation on temporality of film, the futility of preservation and a celebration of the absurdity of everyday existence. At once a performance work and film piece, Orlandi's work directly addresses the conections between screen and physical space.
