5-9 Site Specific Film and Video Projections

24 - 28 November, open daily 5pm - 9pm

Unit B9, The Powerhub, St. Peters Street, Maidstone, Kent, ME16 0ST
Nr. Maidstone East Train Station (60 mins from Victoria, London or 50 mins from London Bridge) 

5 – 9 is a show of new, site specific, film and video by Dominic de Vere and Sebastian Edge, Stavros Gangos, Nicky Hamlyn, Conor Kelly and Cathy Rogers.

Most of the work has been made in or for the Powerhub, an imposing former commercial vehicles factory, situated by the river Medway in Maidstone and viewable from Maidstone East railway station. The building is used both as a springboard, subject and venue for the work and the opening time of 5pm to 9pm is intended to exploit the dusk to nightime light of the semi-industrial urban landscape on this part of the river. 

All the work is designed to be projected onto the windows of the gallery, and can be viewed from the railway footbridge opposite, as well as from inside the building. This exhibition results from a collaboration between staff and graduates of the MA in Artists’ Film Video and Photography at the University for the Creative Arts, Maidstone.
