1. Cliff Stevenson will be at the De La Warr Pavilion conducting a residency leading up to the activation of a Radical Gallery Bexhill Space at Dear Serge. Following an imaginative exploration of the area surrounding the Pavilion undertaken in the week prior to the event, Stevenson will present a series of tours of the newly activated outdoor 'Radical Gallery', taking participants on a physical journey through the 'Gallery' and expanding on the themes being explored.

    The Radical Gallery Proposition came about through an investigation of what art is when the starting point is one that presupposes no distinction between art/non-art, gallery/non-gallery, artist/non-artist etc. If art is about the viewer's personal experience, can this be activated outside conventional ideas of the difference between art and non-art? This is not just some fanciful or esoteric artwork. The implications of this work are radical. Amongst other things, through the experience of art, Stevenson is proposing new theories of urban regeneration, economic policy, self development and the meaning of life.

    Stevenson has already activated Radical Gallery spaces in the centre of
    Tunbridge Wells and Brighton.

  3. Anneka is a Brighton based vocalist, whose unmistakable vocal harmonies have already graced records by Forest Swords, Falty DL, Ital Tek and Lone, on labels such as Tri-Angle, Planet Mu and R&S, and seen her feature on a Mary Anne Hobbs BBC Radio 1 Live Session from the legendary Maida Vale Studios, alongside Starkey. Her recently released apocalyptic a capella ‘End Of It’ gives a taste of what’s to come in 2015.

    For her performance of Recursive: De La Warr, Anneka has worked with audio recorded in and around De La Warr, sampling every day sounds as well as sung notes in order to create a rich bank of material. She has then experimented with this audio in order to create a brand new experimental sound piece specifically for Dear Serge.

    Anneka will also play a 20 solo live set of her electronic alt-pop music project of the same name. Armed with drumsticks, sample pads, a keyboard, vocals and more.

  4. Over the past 12 years Strutton has been making a series of drawings using an old wind-up gramophone to produce facsimiles of 7" records. recently this activity has developed into a performance in which the emphasis will shift from the product to the process, and focus more on the ritualistic aspect of making; a kind of séance in which Carbone and Strutton attempt to give voice to the information being inscribed on the paper.

    John Strutton is an artist and musician living and working in London. Over the past few years Strutton has been working on a growing archive of short video works with soundtracks drawn from material recorded by Strutton's band "Arthur Brick" and fellow musician Riccardo Carbone. In 1999 he formed the "The Band of Nod" which performed and exhibited at Camden Arts Centre, Reading Festival, Tate Britain and The Whitechapel Gallery. Recent solo exhibitions include "Grease Madonna" (2014) and "Opus Dopus" (2012) at Domobaal, London and "Donderslag" at Volta NY, New York (2009). Recent group exhibitions include "The Right Hand Gives, The Left Hand Takes Away", Extrapool, Nijmegen, Netherlands (2013), "MK Calling", MK Gallery, Milton Keynes (2013) and "Parkhaus", Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, Germany (2008).

  5. Joan Alexander studied Philosophy at Queens University of Belfast and the Institute of Philosophy KU Leuven, before moving to Brighton to
    complete her Masters in photography. In her practice Joan uses philosophy, photography and drawing in equal measure. For Dear Serge the artist has been commissioned to use her Shadow Dial process to create a new work specific to the De La Pavilion. Working with shadows cast at various locations around the building, these investigations of time and finitude offer a delicate and beguiling way of examining the Pavilion and its occupants.
