You Are Here – 2014

Participating artists: Eleni Bagaki, Ting-ting Cheng, Mahana Delacour, Diego Delas, Marine Guichard, Jana Koelmel, Lucie Kordacova, Vesta Kroese, Chloë Morley, Thomas Owen, Anastasia Papaeleftheriadou, Joe Rogers, Alicia Roy, Mark Tamer and Yunsun Jung.

For eight days only, Kingsgate Project Space was be transformed into a Tourist Information Office. On arrival, our friendly Tour Agents – a team of experts with a wealth of experience – told visitors about the exciting themed tours on offer.

Agents provided audiences with everything they needed to guide them through their very own journey of discovery. With every tour itinerary researched thoroughly, our Tour Agents catered for all visitors, ensuring the best sightseeing experience. We hoped that both residents and tourists were able to capture the essence of Kilburn’s character – its history, natural beauty, and to commemorate its culture.

With a tour to suit everyone, audiences had a fabulous time. Not only did learn about the area, they were also be treated to a number of ground-breaking site-specific ‘exhibits’ ranging from sculpture, performance, installation and video, all hosted in the diverse array of local shops.

This collaboration between artists and Kilburn’s shops brought unfamiliar objects, materials and ideas into view, offering an experience the audiences will never forget. They discovered and explored Kilburn with fresh eyes!

Audiences were invited to come and celebrate Kilburn High Road’s uniqueness before the inevitable onslaught of gentrification!

About You Are Here
