RAW labs presents the London born performance artist, Thomas John Bacon (TJB).

On the 21st June 2019 at 4:43am the sun will rise on the longest day of the year. A boundary of time on an intersection of elemental, geographic and psychogenic landscapes.

We will meet at 51.5050185, 0.0777211

A wasteland, where modernisation meets the industrial and natural land.
Where the Sun rises to purify through
and flame,
these destroyed joints and fragile Self/s.

Moving through the landscape,
binding the avulsions.

Never healed but somehow surviving. The performance will end as the Sun sets.

- The sun will rise again -

This performance is exhibited as part of the London Festival of Architecture and organised with support from Bow Arts & Raw Labs and the kind permission of London City Airport.

This durational artwork is FREE to attend.

Welcome the summer solstice through fire, smoke and pyre.

RAW labs will be open from 11am until 10pm serving refreshments.

If attending for the sunrise, walk to the exact location indicated 51.5050185, 0.0777211 and bring your own food and beverages.
