More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

SuperRefraction at VULPES VULPES - to 6 June

V U L P U S    V U L P U S

4/5  P r o u t  R o a d  C l a p t o n


Five artists and one writer set about a group show at the artist run space Vulpes-Vulpes in Clapton. Working in sculpture, performance, drawing and prose these artists strive to question and understand the assumptions we often make through the explorative nature of the work they make.
The show’s title SuperRefraction refers to meteoralogical conditions in which the trajectory of electro magnetic waves are bent in an arc approaching the curvature of the earth. An unexpected and counter-intuitive property of the heat and moisture content of the atmosphere, SuperRefraction links the chance happenings of our environment and a deeper understanding of the everyday stuff which surrounds us.
The work revolves variously around our relationship to the object, an exploration of wonderment, lyricism of form, links between form and history and ideas of integrity and honesty in material. An ethic of openess and generosity binds these artists work and although the discourse between their works has some history this will be the first time they have all shown at the same space at the same time.
