Acme, supporting artists since 1972

Acme Project Space

 

The Acme Project Space ran from June 2009 to December 2015. It provided an opportunity for those artists who are part of our Residency & Awards Programme and our International Residencies Programme with a public space within which to develop projects, show new work and engage in a critical dialogue with a wider audience.

Acme International Residencies Programme: Associate Artist Residency

As part of a three-month Associate Artist Residency, Indian artist Vishwa Shroff has been exploring London's nooks and crannies, our way of life and the peculiarities of our language. Working primarily from diaries and sketchbooks, she constantly observes her environment, often focusing on the mundane and trivial to explore the idiosyncrasies that are particular to each environment she inhabits. ‘One eye! Two eyes! Three Eyes!’ is her first solo exhibition in London, where she will exhibit her findings as a site-specific drawing installation.

‘On most days, we seem to take our immediate surroundings for granted or merely ignore them. Trees, birds, landscapes, billboards, architecture, the sound of traffic, music and much more become but a mere backdrop to our activity. We stop looking, stop noticing them and sometimes don’t even realise their existence until they change in some way. This project aims to bring interest to just that, the otherwise ignored, and hopes that by bringing attention to one such aspect, it can become a catalyst to evoke a narrative.’ - Vishwa Shroff, February 2012
