Documentation of the exhibition Compulsion by Emma Crouch
A derelict East End psychiatric hospital and former workhouse, St Clements, is the venue for this exhibition curated by Miranda Housden in Bow, East London. Eight artists have created site-specific work in the abandoned rooms and corridors. Exhibiting artists are: Susan Aldworth, Silke Dettmers, Tessa Garland, Miranda Housden, Kerry Lawrence, Susie MacMurray, Jo Stockham and Amikam Toren.
The transformation of this historic building forms part of the summer’s Shuffle Festival, which includes theatre, poetry readings, and films curated by director and local resident, Danny Boyle.
