You cannot step twice into the same river

4 September 2014- 12 October 2014

You cannot step twice into the same river is a video and photography exhibition of international artists that explores the history of the River Thames. Through the work of artists Alia Syed, Ellie Ga and Laura Pawela, the exhibition looks at the reliability of documentary forms and devices. You cannot step twice into the same river challenges the notion of truth content amid intersecting narratives, historical and pictorial evidence and first hand recollections of events.  As part of this exhibition, the Pump House Gallery is commissioning new performances by artists Patrick Coyle and Holly Slingsby that will take place on the evening of the private view.

This exhibition is supported by Arts Council England and is part of Totally Thames 2014. Totally Thames is an annual thirty day programme of art, environment and community-based activities. For more information on Totally Thames please
