24HRS: Marlon Griffith

marlon 24HRS 3

For his 24HRS residency--part of the free+three programme--Marlon Griffith installed a series of "shadow drawings" on large fabric panels across the Alice Yard space. As audience members walked through and around the installation, their own shadows contributed to the spectacle.

(Alice Yard's 24HRS residency programme invites an artist to create a site- and time-specific work in the yard space over the course of a single day. The programme was conceived by Griffith. The first 24HRS artist was Barbadian Sheena Rose.)

free+three poster 2

Artist and designer Marlon Darbeau, one of Alice Yard's creative collaborators, has designed three posters for our free+three anniversary programme, incorporating photographs by Rodell Warner. They draw on the new wordmark typeface Darbeau has designed for Alice Yard, and the distinctive trapezium shape of the floorplan of the small gallery at the heart of our space.

From 7 to 14 September, 2009, during free+three, high-resolution PDF versions of the posters, suitable for printing, were available for download.

See the full free+three programme here.
