Seth Pimlott is the current participatory artist in residence at Gasworks - a role that combines education and outreach, but with the support to create a new body of work in partnership with the groups he works with.
Seth has been working primarily with the Polish and Latin American communities in the Borough, through the organisations Poles Connect based in Stockwell, La Escuela Gabriel García Marquéz in Kennington and the group Sin Fronteras. Working with different age groups, he has been exploring histories of migration, and how each generation negotiate the lives they make for themselves in London and their native, or ancestral heritage and culture.
Using material generated in the workshops, he is co-authoring a script with the participants that draws out the ephemeral forces holding individuals within a community together, and that reflects on the subtle shifts of the cities' social fabric.
