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.

Fire Station Work/Live Programme 4

We Colonised The Moon will be installing a brand new laboratory entitled ‘101 Harmless Scientific Experiments To Try At Home’ at the Acme Project Space this summer. For six weeks between 11 August and 25 September they will be investigating and inventing solutions for anti-gravity, time machines and holding auditions for astronauts.

We Colonised The Moon comprises Acme Fire Station artist Sue Corke and collaborator Hagen Betzwieser (Germany). Together they explore an idiosyncratic world view based on popular science, flexible wikipedia knowledge, graphical illustrations and various display formats. The gap between evidence and experience is the point of departure for their work at the Acme Project Space in London where they will be exploring homemade scientific discovery.

Hagen Betzwieser (Germany) operates in an undefined grey zone as the The Institute of General Theory which makes no distinction between fiction and science, art and craft, independent work and self exploitation; between game, experiment and paid work, between experimental and studio space, or between museum and university. Hagen Betzwieser is a Fellow of Akademie Schloss Solitude.

Sue Corke is an artist and printmaker with a focus on the theatre of illustration. She took up a five-year work/live residency at the Acme Fire Station in London in 2010. When they are not physically working together they maintain their collaboration through online discussions about rabbits, space men, Higgs Boson Particles, the Large Hadron Collider, zero gravity chambers and where in the world to buy the best mechanical pencils.
