To celebrate the work of artists on our Fire Station Work/Live Programme 5 (2015-2020), throughout each month of 2016 will feature a different artist on this ground-breaking programme.
In 2015 we featured pieces from recent graduates on a range of award programmes including Adrian Carruthers Studio Award, Chelsea Studio Award, CSM Associate Studio Programme, Goldsmiths Studio Award and the Helen Scott Lidgett Studio Award.
As 2014 was the final year of our Fire Station Work/Live Programme 4 (2012-2015), each month we featured a work by one of the 12 Fire Station artists who benefitted from this important and supportive scheme.
From January 2013, twelve works commissioned from current Acme artists, featured on our Home Page. The works, including new or already existing pieces, each connected in some way to what we do and/or to our 40th Anniversary and include a range of formats, from painting and photography to video and sound.
May - Emma Corrall
"Objects and the things we make can become strangely totalized entities, things that are so over touched and so forced into an unlocatable space. The notion of the outlandish takes over from the security of the individual from the rational to the imagined in my video work The idea of self-awareness crosses both my material and conceptual pursuits. Video plays the role of tableau for an expanded material field to circulate. The sense of the exotic is used as a tool to measure the self against, the sense of the other."

Between 1996 and 2012 Acme received £3.2m of capital funding from Arts Council England which supported the creation of six permanent affordable studios in London: Copperfield Road, Fire Station, Galleria, Harrow Road, Leven Road and Matchmakers Wharf. This resulted in 186 studios and 12 work/live units in four London boroughs.
