During last week's Sunday Spot workshop artist Angelica Teuta collaborated with local children and families to transform our Clore Studio into a large scale blanket fort made of bed sheets, recycled fabric and yarn. Also pictured is the first stages of Angelica Teuta's Open Plan residency project ‘Emotional Architecture’. The structure on Pelican Playground will continue to grow this August into a shelter for children to play, run and hide in. You can help Teuta and the Art & Play Team build every Wednesday and Friday between 2- 5pm and at Sunday Spot 2-4pm.

"The title of the exhibition is ‘Intuitive Ratio’, it is this kind of feeling that I have that I don't have the power or the main control of what happens when I’m doing my work.” - Luiz Zerbini
.
This is the final week to see ‘Intuitive Ratio’, a major solo exhibition Luiz Zerbini’s paintings, prints, films and sculpture. The exhibition is open until 9pm on Wednesday night and then 11am-6pm until Sunday 19 August. Image: Luiz Zerbini, ‘Serrote’, 2013. Acrylic on canvas. Photo: Max Wigram Gallery.

This week in the #slgbookshop, we have a multitude of books of the week, from our #publisherstable residents @strangeattractorpress, on display from today until 19 Aug.
.

Strange Attractor Press is an entirely independent publishing house, founded in 2003, based in London, UK and run by Mark Pilkington and Jamie Sutcliffe.

They aim to celebrate unpopular culture and to document and historicise rare, lost, marginal or rejected history, culture and knowledge. Increasingly they have also come to see their role as documenting British underground, fringe and counter culture, from medieval heretics via nineteenth-century decadent poets, the twentieth-century literary and musical undergrounds, and current strands in art, music and writing.

This August Angélica Teuta will bring her collaborative practice from Colombia to Peckham for a summer of activities for local children and families. Teuta’s project, ‘Emotional Architecture’ uses recycled materials and DIY construction methods to explore the idea that everyone needs to experience making and having shelter. Every Wednesday and Friday, 2-5pm during the summer holidays, local children can help build dens and habitable structures on the Pelican playground. As well as activities on Pelican, Angelica will lead our free Sunday Spot workshops at the SLG on Sunday 12, 19 & 26 August 2–4pm, bringing her exploration of den building to the Clore Studio and Orozco Garden. .

On the roof of Heron House on Pelican Estate you can now see a new large scale text installation by Jessie Brennan, which reads WE ARE HERE.
This public artwork is the inaugural Open Plan artist residency and commission for Pelican Estate. Brennan has been collaborating with people who live and work on the estate since spring 2017, inviting these residents to share stories of their daily lives with her before transforming some of these conversations into text installations.
The phrase is a quote contributed by resident Saloua, but its sentiment resonated through many of the discussions shared with the artist during her residency. Image: Jessie Brennan, ‘We Are Here’, 2018, text installation, Heron House, Pelican Estate. Photo: @studiostagg .
