A Fear of Getting Lost

Edgar—Walker
  • 15 Mar — 22 Apr 2017

Assembly Point is delighted to present A Fear of Getting Lost, a new site-specific installation by artist collaborative Edgar—Walker. The installation will feature a maze-like arrangement of industrial steel fence panels, punctuated by sculptural arrangements of found objects and materials.

Drawing on the textures and aesthetics of the urban environment, industrial processes, natural and consumer materials, the artists will respond to the unique architecture of Assembly Point to describe ideas around power, disorientation, structures and containment.

Edgar—Walker is a collaboration between James Edgar (b.1978, London) and Sam Walker (b.1986, London). The pair have been working together as Edgar—Walker on collaborative projects since graduating from MA Fine Art at Camberwell/Chelsea College of Art in 2013. Their approach to making has been influenced by ideas around poiesis, play, dialogue and experimentation. Edgar—Walker’s sculptures, installations and printed matter utilise a palette of found and overlooked materials from everyday contexts. Their varied output registers as both formal and playful, seeking to delineate the boundaries between material, image, form and function. The artists also co-founded Assembly Point in 2015 where they oversee the programming and operations alongside their artistic practice. They were recently featured in the article: The London Artist-Run Galleries You Need to Know, published by Artsy (2016).
