Silva+Sajovic: Beating the Bounds Walk One

Tuesday 9 February 2016,
, led by Alison Proctor of Siobhan Davies Dance.


Elephant & Castle doesn’t exist as a political ward, yet it exists in the imagination of people who live and work in the area. Artists Corinne Silva + Eva Sajovic invite students and members of the community to join them for a participatory walk, led by Alison Proctor of Siobhan Davies Dance who will show us her personal boundaries of the Elephant & Castle.

Beating the Bounds is an ancient English custom in which a priest and members of the community, armed with willow boughs, would beat the parish boundary markers, lest they be forgotten.

Walks will be digitally traced using an app. The artists will then superimpose the resulting drawings to identify a collective boundary of the area and produce a multi-media map.

Beating the Bounds is part of London College of Communication's public programme.
