Saturday 08 April 2017 – Sunday 18 June 2017
Opening Hours: 12-5pm

Spike Island presents a solo exhibition by artist, cultural activist and filmmaker Andrea Luka Zimmerman. Her work documents lives and stories of coexistence and resistance in precarious times; from encounters with the street dogs of Istanbul and the citizens who care for them, to the long drawn-out closure of the East London housing estate where the artist once lived and whose residents she filmed over seven years. Zimmerman is co-founder of the artists’ collective Fugitive Images and the filmmaking collective Vision Machine.

Andrea Luka Zimmerman is an artist, cultural activist and filmmaker who works internationally, including in the USA, Indonesia and the UK. She grew up on a large council estate in Munich and left school at 16. After moving to London in 1991, she studied at Central St. Martins (where she now teaches) for her PhD. She is a co-founder of the artists' collectives Fugitive Images and Vision Machine. Her collaborative feature drama Cycle (forthcoming) with Adrian Jackson (Cardboard Citizens) was the winner of the Artangel Open Award 2014.
