Curtains up for Studio Weave's floating cinema

  • Comment

Hackney’s Studio Weave has revealed these images of its proposed floating cinema which will navigate the waterways of the five Olympic host boroughs this summer

Developed with artistic collective Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie), the scheme is the latest temporary showstopper delivered through the UP Projects’ Portavilion 2011 project.

Portavilion Curator, Emma Underhill said: ‘Portavilion is a mobile, expanding public art project and we are delighted to have the opportunity to develop the
sixth commission in the series, this time for East London’s waterways, with Somewhere and Studio Weave.

‘The canals and rivers provide a very tangible connection running through the five Olympic boroughs and into the Olympic Park itself, and offer a rich environment for The Floating Cinema to navigate.’
