Crossover Point is a community project led by artist Becky Warnock for HOUSE Biennial, working with a diverse group of participants from Brighton Table Tennis Club to explore stories, memories and the ideas that connect us. The project will culminate in two exhibitions of work, one at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery and one here at ONCA. Moving image work by Becky will be exhibited at the museum and the participant’s work will be exhibited at ONCA.
Starting from the stories found within Brighton Museum & Art Gallery’s Willett Collection of Popular Pottery, such as the Devil/Pope stirrup cup, and the Museum’s collection of Regency caricatures, the project considers ideas around the HOUSE Biennial theme of Excess and the polarities that having too much or too little can foster.
The project is a partnership between HOUSE Biennial, Brighton Table Tennis Club and Photoworks, supported by the Royal Pavilion & Museums and ONCA.
Brighton Table Tennis Club works with people of all ages, especially young people, to improve health, celebrate diversity and build a strong community. It runs sessions for young people of all ages and backgrounds, those aged 50+, adults with learning disabilities and children in care. It is the UK’s first Club of Sanctuary – welcoming Refugees & Asylum Seekers.
