Studio grant holders in Stockholm 1 August - 30 October 2018


They Are Here
(f.2006) is a collaborative practice steered by Helen Walker and Harun Morrison. They are currently based in London and on the River Lea. Their work can be read as a series of context specific non-narrative conceptual games. They generate temporary systems and cultivate micro-communities that offer an alternate means of engaging with a situation, history / future or ideology. Working across video, publications, sound and performance, the delineation of time itself can be a structural element.
 
As artists in residence in Finsbury Park, London, They Are Here initiated Seeds From Elsewhere (2016 - ongoing), an urban gardening project on disused land that brings together young migrants (including asylum seekers and refugees), family, friends and other professionals (including architects, gardeners, photographers and carpenters). Each participant is supported to grow flowers, plants or edible produce from their respective homeland. Throughout the process they literally and metaphorically ask ‘What can grow here that’s not from here?’.
They Are Here work across many types of site, particularly civic locations. Institutions they have developed or presented work include Camden Arts Centre, CCA Glasgow, Grand Union, Konsthall C, South London Gallery, Studio Voltaire, STUK and Tate Modern.
