The Penultimate WAKE & ARCHIPELAGO By Flavia Malim  Under the cool shadow of the trees I enter Dilston Grove and exchange weather related comments with the girl on the desk, who recognises me, this having been my at least my fifth visit.

By Mara Minculescu Surprised yet?! Yellow ribbon. This was the thread that provided a link between two exceptionally different installations in Dilston Grove – the all-concrete former Clare College Mission church in Southwark Park. The building itself is an out-of-the-ordinary space; bare and raw, empty of any decoration, cold and eerie – a remnant from … Continue reading

WAKE: Week 2 - William Cobbing.

  Week 2 at Dilston Grove… By Laura Milnes     I was told to be surprised at the changes that had taken place in Dilston Grove this week. I sort of shrugged it off. How different could it really be? A trickle of yellow ribbon creeps out from under the first door; I open … Continue reading
