‘Material Action‘ is led by Collective Matter, three artists who work with clay and believe it’s a great material for anyone to express their creativity.
Collective Matter are in residence with Beaconsfield from 11-22 January with 4 tonnes of British brick clay to play with. They are inviting local young people to collaborate with them and capture their impressions of how Vauxhall is changing through a large-scale clay installation.

The project ‘Material Action’ works across three galleries – Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall, Gasworks and Pump House Gallery, offering young people from Lambeth and Wandsworth the opportunity to explore clay working and exchange their experiences of the developing area with the support of skilled and established artists.
‘Material Action’ was introduced at Gasworks through ‘Make and Tell’ workshops on 11 and 15 December, 2016 https://www.gasworks.org.uk/participation/collective-matter-ccreative-clay-workshop-2016-12-11/ and Collective Matter will conduct further practical sessions during February with communities associated with Gasworks and Pump House Gallery. There will be an exhibition 3-5 March on Pump House Gallery forecourt in Battersea Park. http://pumphousegallery.org.uk/whats-on/this-month
As a result of this collaboration there will be an interactive, participatory showcase within Tate Exchange at Tate Modern in March 2017.
