CAMDEN ENCOUNTERS for #Camden50

Elly Clarke was one of four artists / artist groups who was commissioned to make a new work to mark 50 years since the borough of Camden was formed in its current state. Elly's project, Camden Encounters, involves the gathering of people's site-specific 'sticky memories' at the location to which they belong (/are stuck.)

Using video, audio and photography, the aim was to produce an alternative map (and portrait) of Camden and her nooks and crannies, and the memories that nestle there, which spring up from the ground every time certain individuals pass through that bar / that cafe / that park.

#Camden50 was curated by Charlie Levine.
