promenade and at the Stade
Hall
An intriguing visual & audio
installation inspired by the
disused Victorian Turkish Baths/
Glass Factory on West Hill Road,
St Leonards Gardens. Soundartist James Brewster will create
an interactive sound installation
that fuses together the
building’s dual history. After the
end of its original working life,
the spa building was used as
a factory for making scientific
glass equipment. Brewster will
salvage glass tubes and valves
from the factory and create a
glass system through which
water can gradually flow. The
sounds of the water will be
picked up using hydrophonic
microphones. Visitors can
control the flow of water into
the system, as well as change
the flow and course of the
water at various points. A large
glass sculpture created by artist
Abigail Riddihough can be
seen in the gardens, while wall
projections reflect the bathers
of the historic Turkish baths.
Brewster will conduct a group
of volunteer performers to
ring different types of bells in
different patterns. Performers
will then lead the procession
onto the promenade to Bottle
Alley in a circle formation.

The Poor Law Union is a
creative partnership which
seeks to understand and define
the individual and its society:
is society just another word
for the group or has it become
an entity unto itself, capable
of an existence in spite of its
members? For Coastal Currents,
The Poor Law Union has walked
the Old Hastings Parish line
documenting their journey
and gathering objects along
the way. These artefacts form
the basis of a topographical
enquiry addressing the nature
of boundaries, man made
and natural, seen and unseen,
and the implication of these
boundaries on those living
within and outside them. The
culmination of this investigation
is a multi-media installation
which presents their ideas and
observations and the inevitable
questions that these raise.

ONE TWO ONE art and
architecture is a collaborative
partnership founded in 2004
by architect and artist Elise
Liversedge and artist Mary
Hooper.
Crossed Boundaries is a
temporary promenade
installation and inland trail
marking the boundary between
St Leonards & Hastings, which
historically was the centre of a
long running dispute during the
earlier development of the town.
A temporary boundary will be
created on Sunday 28 August
with red tape and large-scale
cardboard letters placed on the
sea front. Billboard posters will
be displayed throughout the
festival located on the lower
promenade at Warrior Square,
The installation is influenced
by the works and journals of
local historian TB Brett and
the infamous escapades of the
“Paint Pot Society” who took to
the streets at night and painted
out the new street signs erected

Through an audio installation in
St Leonards Gardens the past
blurs with present. Meander
through the gardens and listen
out for whispered glimpses of
Miss Harriet Williams’ �Musings
of a lady recently arrived at St
Leonards-on-Sea’, an account,
in the style of Jane Austen, of
the colourful characters met
and places encountered when
she first started living in modern
day St Leonards. Typographic
artworks continue the �Musings’
trail around Open Studios and
historic buildings in the area.

Promenade - full location
details online at

Beccy McCray makes playful
explorations using mixed media
to create more human moments
in the world, elevating the
everyday and the things that
really matter. Subverting the
ominous CCTV posts dotted
along the seafront from St
Leonards to Hastings, she
transforms them into more
friendly landmarks by turning
them into giant sticks of rock.
The work alludes to traditional
seaside iconography, reclaiming
and humanising the local
landscape.

INTERFACE
Info: Christine Gist
com
Hastings based artists have been
invited to work in Oudenaarde while
practitioners from France, Belgium
and the UK are locating temporary
interventions and events in Hastings
and St Leonards.
INTERFACE focuses on new and
recontextualised works through
installations, performance, sound,
projections, moving image, painting,
photography and text based
interventions. The artists are working
in unfamiliar territories and through
their actions are proposing new
interpretations of local environments
and raising questions about the way
spaces are negotiated. As an artists’
collaboration, INTERFACE aims to
animate the public space, encourage
participation and change the
perception of the familiar.

Chatham, Kent in 1959. Initially
denied an interview to the local
art school, during six months
of employment at a dockyard
he produced hundreds of
drawings that gained him entry
to St Martin’s School of Art,
from which he was expelled in
1981. Childish then embarked
on an artistic, literary, and

broad range of worldly themes
including war, history, social
protest, art hate, religious
philosophy, as well his own
experiences with addiction, and
sexual abuse. Over 35 years
of continual creative activity
Childish has gained a cult
status world-wide; writing and
publishing over 40 volumes of
confessional poetry, 5 novels,
recorded over 100 LPs, and
painted many hundreds of

Paul Thomas examines the
surface minutiae of domestic
buildings. Appearing at first to
be abstracts, or maybe aerial
landscapes, these images
reveal cracks, repairs and
the encroachment of nature.

Art Work by Rhian Thomas
27 August - 30 September
Daily 11am-5pm.
Rhian’s work explores memory
and people’s relationships with
objects, how they are often
kept as relics in a domestic
environment, simultaneously
enforcing the presence and
absence of people. Like
photographs they are retained
as a way of preserving a period
of time or a feeling that is no
longer in existence.

This work was inspired by the
places and people of Hastings
and St Leonards.
The urban environment
fascinates me. I create my
work from observations of
people and places I see around
me everyday. My medium is
printmaking. The technique I
use is called �dry point’. I hand
colour my prints, making small
editions.

The Open Studios programme is always a popular feature of Coastal Currents, and this
year we have even more artists taking part, presenting their work in their homes, studios,
beach huts and gardens.
Open Studios take place over two weekends, and offer a wealth of arts and crafts from bold outdoor sculptures, to paintings, prints, jewellery, textiles, ceramics, books
and prints. Take this opportunity to meet local artists and makers; and browse, buy or
commission artwork.
This year the trail extends to Bexhill and Battle, stretching all the way along the coast to
Rye, giving the chance to discover studios in town centres, countryside hideaways and
coastal locations as part of the route.
