Exhibitions

Artist Roland Carline is the CCA’s artist in residence for 2020–2021. Continuing on from a commission as part of the CCA’s Episodes programme in 2019, the CCA has asked Carline to continue to build upon the relationships developed in Lewisham over the last year.  Carline will be developing projects with Ambient Jam Collective and recently established Deptford Freestylers culminating in new live works presented at CCA when this is possible.

Carline will also be presenting new works made specifically for the CCA lockdown programme. Films made from previous live works. as well as a series of short chapters entitled ’Creativity at Home’, Carline will be exploring if and how creativity during isolation can be a method for managing boredom, anxiety, loneliness, loss and madness.

Carline has been working in social work and applied arts in community settings since 1998.  His works often feature signature props, costumes and ‘loose parts’, and moved through the register of humour and absurdity to celebrates collusion, and forge an embodied mode of spectatorship that sits with ambiguity and discomfort. For Carline the performers are at the heart of the process, so that the work itself can fall apart and reconstitute in new and unforeseen ways. Carline’s approach is to retreat into the work, allowing collaborators to take the lead – disrupting prevailing ideas of hierarchy within the artists’ practice.

PARTICIPATING GROUPS:

Ambient Jam is a multi-media dance improvisation which is uniquely sensitive to place, context and people. The improvisation is forged by 25 years of collaboration between a team of artists and people with profound disabilities, who are adept at working with uncertainty, negative capability, and the mindfulness of the present moment. Ambient Jam entails improvisation as a way of social dreaming, that foregrounds kinaesthetic intelligence and sensory perception. Unfolding live art and ‘deep hanging out’, wordless stories emerge and landscapes shift in direct response to the qualities and energies of different sites. Ambient Jam’s improvisation events are open to all ages from 0 to 100.

Deptford Freestylers is an inclusive performance and improvisation project based in Deptford. set up by Rachel Gildea, Francis Majekodunmi and Roland Carline. The group meet every Tuesday at Deptford X, they share music, look for new ways to engage with performance and learn from each other. Watch a film made by the group here.
