Walker & Bromwich: Dance of Eternal Hope

Publication Date 25 Nov 2012

Choreographed by Kate Taylor.

The Encampment of Eternal Hope (Level 2 at BALTIC, 5 October 2012 - 13 January 2013) is a major new sculptural installation by Zoë Walker & Neil Bromwich extending their enquiry into the role of art as an active agent for transformation in society. Taking apocalyptic predictions for 21 December 2012 – the end date for the Mayan Calendar – as an imaginative catalyst, the project envisages a post-apocalyptic utopian community, a kind of ‘garden of earthly delights’. This ambitious participatory installation will evolve within the gallery space involving audiences in a programme of events, which bring together experts in the fields of ecology, economy and the arts to explore hopes and fears for future survival.

The Encampment of Eternal Hope is a nomadic social sculpture, field laboratory and evolving community. Part-tent and part-garden, it seeks out positive strategies for future living at a time of global uncertainty. The collaborative duo are renowned for their large-scale participatory events and exhibitions that invite audiences to imagine better worlds.
