What is it?
The Southbank Centre presents the third of its This Is Not A Pop-Up concessions at the Hayward Gallery shop. This Is Not A Pop-Up was launched in September 2011, created to showcase the work of some of today’s most exciting designers. Zombie Collective will make the most of the riverside location to present Fathoms Deep, taking over the space with a nautical themed spectacular.
Fathoms Deep brings together new work from Zombie alongside new talent Anthony Peters, Chryso Haralambous, Calm & Collected, Jason Munro, El Famoso, Alan Dalby, Laura Bird, Patrick Schmidt & Nick Hayes. The collection includes prints, cards, deck chairs and all sorts of sea-faring paraphernalia that will sell alongside the Collectives existing quirky and unique gifts. There will be a diverse range of products ranging from little collectibles for under a pound up to limited edition work at £150.
For the launch evening (17th May by invitation) El Famoso will be on hand illustrating their own large-scale seaside attraction, music will be provided by skiffle band The Severed Limb and there will be temporary nautical tattoos and pin badge making.
There will be a selection of water inspired workshops with Zombie Collective for budding artists (age 6+) every weekend of the residency, these include:
19th May – X Marks the Spot – Typographic treasure map making.
26th May – Barnacled Beasts – Create your own creature of the deep.
2nd June – The Mini Armada – Build your own mini boat and deck it with a custom flag.
In addition to the workshops, every Saturday in the shop there will be a selection of things to do for all ages. The Bowyer Press will be showing how to letterpress your own cards, there will be custom maritime badge making and you can get yourself kitted out with temporary nautical tattoos created especially for Fathoms Deep.
