Event Details

Ballard Central – Ghost Swimming Pool Composition
Mo Bottomley
Saturday 24th September, between 4-6pm
Assorted outdoor locations between the Athenaeum and KARST gallery
Start 4pm Plymouth Athenaeum
The remnants of Plymouth’s Ballard Swimming Pool, the former television studios of Westward Television / TSW, the Millbay train sidings, and the Union Street railway arches, are on a direct path between the Athenaeum and KARST gallery. This path was also walked most evenings by the artist in both 1981-82 and 2015-16.
Mo Bottomley will be lead a psychogeographic walk to map the locations of events, constructions, demolitions and broadcasts at these locations and investigate their meanings in a post-Ballardian city. Road-surface mnemonics, sonic nostalgia, and close observation of double yellow lines provide a live and accumulated notation. The resulting musical score will be performed by Spoils Collective en route.
