SPACE and LUX are excited to announce the upcoming BYOB event at SPACE. Started by visual artist Rafael Rozedaal, BYOB is an international movement of DIY one-night-exhibitions where artists collaborate on site to create a moving image performance. BYOB events have been held in over 40 international cities.
Hosted by SPACE and LUX, BYOB London will bring together more than 30 artists to create a collaborative night of moving image work. This immersive environment of DIY spontaneity and experimentation provides artists with a platform for non-formal display and discussion. We invite the curious and the engaged to join us for a drink and experience this showcase of moving images.
Established by artists in 1968, SPACE provides affordable creative workspace and support programmes for artists: commissions, exhibitions, residencies and training opportunities. SPACE also delivers Learning projects for schools, young people and communities neighbouring Space studio sites.
LUX is a public arts agency based in London that exists to support and promote artists’ moving image work, through distribution, exhibition, education, publishing and research.

Alongside the other artists and filmmakers, I’m very excited to be taking part and screening a new film, details below..
“Trapped in the Amber” by Sadie Tierney
“Here we are trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.” (Kurt Vonnegut)
In an era before smart phones a camera is left running at a party so guests can pick it up and film and perform. Presented here largely in slow motion with no sound, the artist uses a few minutes of real time and sound to define heightened clarity within the remembered event.
Digital Video, 1 hour, silent with 3 minutes of sound, looped.
