Netwalking Public Walk: Physics Room

A group of walkers are invited to join artist Simon Pope in a walk around the Christchurch C.B.D. Following a short talk at the Physics Room in which the artist will introduce walking and dialogue in art and show excerpts from Memory Marathon(2010), he will invite Chistchurch inhabitants to reflect on their relationships to their shifting and dynamic landscape as they move through the city.

Where Pope has often used walking as a means to explore various ways in which an ‘ideal’ of dialogue is modelled – through a roaming across open land for example – this workshop takes into account the inherently fraught and unstable environmental context of Christchurch. This will be an opportunity to discuss Pope’s latest research in which he is developing artwork which explores the enmeshedness of social and environmental things, especially at points of crisis, when both land and human, social formations are rapidly reconfigured.

Meeting point and end point of the walk is at The Physics Room.
