Conservators occupy 'London Occupation Rio' video

Renata Peters and Rachel Farmer (UCL MSc in Conservation student) feature in a video made for ‘London Occupation Rio’, London's occupation by 30 artists from Rio de Janeiro working with UK collaborators in preparation for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The video, produced realistically but contextualized in the future, is part of Bruno Vianna’s installation with objects and photographs in which the public will see the results of a ‘future excavation’ during the London Olympics 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016.  The installation mixes fiction and reality to question values connected to authenticity, uniqueness and cultural hierarchies. Using irony, it will invite people to look differently at their relationships with the past of Rio and London.

The ‘Occupation’ comes to a conclusion with a three day indoor festival in the V22 Summer Club at the Biscuit Factory where Vianna’s installation will be displayed along with the work created by the other 29 artists.
