Shibboleth
17/11/06 – 09/12/06
Curated by Neil Drabble,
Charlie Fox and Nigel Robinson

What is right but what we prove to be right ?
And what is true but what we believe to be true ?

Fifty artists from all corners of the globe will descend on Dilston Grove in the heart of Bermondsey, South London. A carpet, a shed, a strip light, a weed, a jigsaw, graffiti, a micro- wave oven, a mini opera, an alien abduction, a miniature power station, a tower of fabric, the familiar and the strange will rub shoulders within the unique confines of this de-consecrated church on the edge of the park. The building long since stripped of its religious trappings, reduced to a ravaged husk, denied its intended purpose is itself an enormous Shibboleth, a huge ‘Russian Doll’ housing the many shibboleths within.
