Through a curated programme including discussions from chemists, artistic responses, films, performance and more, On Sulphur shares the process and research that Sheila undertook to make 'Sulphur' in early 2017. 

Curated by Sheila with producer Sally Rose - this is the first time they have collaborated in putting together a programme, and this will be a welcoming space to learn, discuss and reflect on the cross-pollination between art, culture and science.

Contributors on the day include collaborators from ‘Sulphur’, and artists and scientists from Europe and the UK:

Session 1, 2-5pm: Professor Clive Oppenheimer (Department of Geography, University of Cambridge), Agnieszka Gratza (writer and drifter) and Dr Andrew Szydło (Chemistry Teacher, Highgate School).

Session 2, 6-9.30pm: Tim Spooner (who will show his performance sculpture ‘The Telescope’), Ross Williams (Science Technician, London), John Hunter (videographer for ‘Sulphur’ and artist), Marty Langthorne (Lighting designer for ‘Sulphur’ and artist) and performers in an extract of ‘Sulphur’ Jo Hellier, Katherina Radeva and Louisa Robbin. 

Including films by; Gosie Vervloessem (Belgium), Becky Edmunds/Fiona Wright, Lucy Cash and a curated selection from Cineclub Croy (Switzerland), and installations from Marty Langthorne and John Hunter.
