Lacuna is a three day exhibition briefly embedded in Cliftonville's Newgate Gap. A corridor cutting through chalk cliffs, this route is explored as a sonic / lexical / legal / osteal intermission in Thanet’s coastal landscape.
Artists Josephine Callaghan, Lina Lapelyte and Newton Whitelaw will intervene in the gap with sculpture and performance from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th September.
An artist film screening will take place on Saturday at 8pm featuring works from Nils Alex-Tabeling, Neil Haas, Grant Petrey, Frederique Pisuisse, Erica Scourti and Sam Tierney.

Performances commence at 7pm both nights.

In this workshop led by Lina Lapelyte we will use our voices in a group improvisation using collectively chosen texts. No musical training or score reading is required, participants should just be keen on experimenting with their voices. The workshop is based on Lapelyte’s music making techniques.
Rendering & Pulhamite

Artist Newton Whitelaw will work together with participants to merge virtual technology with the mock rocks (Pulhamite) found within the Newgate Gap. Please download the free app Augment to your device in advance.
