Celia Hempton created a new site-specific installation in a new creative space called The Store, in a section of the iconic brutalist building 180 Strand that overlooks the Thames. Hempton created a new theatre set-like environment that combined abstracted landscapes and bodies, relating specifically to the source of the River Thames; that considers the river as a historical and metaphorical object – one that is ever changing and amorphous in form and gender.

The project was presented in collaboration with Vinyl Factory and The Store.
