DAMP COURSE

Alex Chalmers

Beneath the former white space gallery is a basement stained by rising groundwater, stripped back to the concrete walls that hold off the earth under the street, the buried electric cables, water pipes, sewers, pumps and the storm drains that lead to the sea. This enclosure strains under a consistent and solid pressure.

'DAMP COURSE' co-habits with this sodden concrete shell in separation from the world above. The films on show permeate this man-made archaeology, drawing both on the material and fictitious destruction of the house. Both artists investigate a parallel existence. The films breach this gap.
