Pil and Galia Kollectiv exhibition at Pump House Gallery

Published: 5 January 2016

The Pump House Gallery has announced it will be hosting its first solo exhibition by Pil and Galia Kollectiv next month.

The artists will transform the building into a makeshift film set which they will use to shoot a film during the gallery’s closing hours. The gallery will become an exploratory setting of an artwork that constantly evolves, offering different experiences to visitors as the project develops.

The exhibition will be complemented by Pump House Gallery’s trademark participation programme. Alongside each exhibition, an artist is invited to present a participatory project which encourages visitors and families to contribute their thoughts.  In the gallery’s Project Space a key theme from the exhibition will be explored using hands-on making activities.

Councillor Jonathan Cook, Wandsworth Council’s arts spokesman, said “The council’s proud to support another innovative exhibition at the Pump House Gallery, which will be a great opportunity for local people to learn, create and engage with art.”

The Pump House Gallery is operated by Enable Leisure and Culture on behalf of Wandsworth Council. Paul McCue, Enable’s managing director, said “The return of Pil and Galia’s exhibition for a second time shows their popularity and I know that visitors to the gallery will be inspired by the film set installation.”  

The Pump House Gallery is a public contemporary exhibition space housed in a distinctive four story grade II listed Victorian tower by the lake in Battersea Park.
