Forster and Heighes latest project showing at the Arts & Humanities Festival 2016

Ewan Forster and Christopher Heighes, both Creative Research Fellows at the University of Roehampton are presenting their latest project, Three King’s, over two days at King’s College London on the 13 and 14 October as part of the Arts & Humanities Festival 2016.

Posted: 4 October 2016

Three King’s is a consolidation of three recent projects by Forster and Heighes which have all revolved around the buildings of King’s College. It will bring together photographic and film elements from the previous projects to create an installation exploring the areas of heritage, identity, value and preservation of the buildings of King’s College. A series of talks and discussions will open up this work to wider perspectives on the connection between arts and the built environment.

Revenue (2011) is the first of the projects under the Three King’s banner. It focuses on images of the East Wing at Somerset House taken in the last few weeks of its occupation by the Inland Revenue. Plant Science (2013) looks at the unused teaching spaces of what was the Department of Plant Sciences in Herne Hill. The most recent project Is this Your Life? (2014) is centred on 22 Kingsway, a 1960s office block with an extraordinary history, which is now home to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. Each of these projects was devised to explore both the diversity of the architecture of King’s and the intriguing bonds and similarities that have helped to shape its identity today.

The exhibition is free and open to attend. The two talks and discussion events are also free, however booking for these is essential. For more information please or to book tickets click here
