Performance Lecture: Simon Faithfull, 0º00 Navigation

Simon Faithfull will realise a performance lecture at Cody Dock to mark the launch of 0º00 Navigation Part II.

Co-curated with Arup Phase 2, 0º00 Navigation is a body of work by British artist Simon Faithfull, which relates to two epic journeys he undertook in order to trace 0° line of longitude across the planet. It seeks to explore the paradoxes and absurdities of this hypothetical line. This installation consists of 38 paving stones that are engraved with drawings made by the artist as he travelled south along the Greenwich Meridian across Europe and Africa. Depicting the landscapes and buildings along the route, from the English Channel to Accra in Ghana, the stones are installed in a straight line, due south to echo Faithfull’s journey, following the invisible north / south line. The Greenwich Meridian runs parallel to this installation.

This event has been developed as part of the 2023 Open House Festival. There is a whole host of events happening locally to The Line from the 6th – 17th September; check out the programme at https://programme.openhouse.org.uk/.
