A Gap In The Fence - Camden Art Centre

Artist Eva Jonas and pupils from Maria Fidelis School navigate worlds seen and unseen in this series of workshops.

Exploring participants inner and outer worlds through creative collaboration. Eva will draw on ideas from Lola Olufemi’s book Experiments in Imagining Otherwise, as a call to take our imagination seriously and the ability it has to help us ‘see a new’.

Loosely following the route of a lost river that once ran near the school through Kings Cross towards Camden Art Centre the group will make links with local geography, the school environment and home to make physical and conceptual connections.

Inspired by a drawing made during the first workshop a constellation of references and artworks will form a physical record of the project in the shape of a spiders web. The programme will conclude with the co-creation of an artwork by the participants and Eva.

More detail will follow as the project develops.

The Artist

The Artist

Eva Jonas is a London-based visual artist and educator. Her practice invites viewers to reflect on our relationship with the natural world, recording where the body mediates how we experience, preserve, and perform within landscapes. Her projects lean on the processes of collecting and publishing. They are often informed by sculptural pieces and research ephemera, such as visual guides for creative crafts and outdoor activities. She draws on these instructional images to consider the extent to which engagement with the natural world is taught versus innate. Eva is currently co-facilitating Peer Matters, an artist development programme supported by Photoworks. Recent exhibitions include The Natural, Rural and Remote and accompanying workshop, Garden Recordings at Serchia Gallery, Bristol in July 2023, and a group show with (re)structure as part of Brighton Photo Fringe in October 2022. Eva’s first book Let’s Sketch the Lay of the Land was published in October 2020 by September Books.
