The Shelter


UCL Quadrangle | Gower Street (link Map)
London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

This project aims to investigate the ironic notion of a shelter – the co-existence both of its necessity and its impossibility – as well as the questioning the meaning of having this notion within day-to-day existential struggle we are facing.

The Shelter is temporary space away from communication. On the grounds of its motives and needs, visitors will declare and agree to part with means of communication such as speaking, writing, reading, as well as use of personal electronic devices, sign language, pictogramme, and non-verbal communication involving touch without pre-agreement. Visitors have the freedom to use The Shelter to find their own safety. The Shelter is facilitated by Ellen Yeon Kim, a BA student at the Slade School of Fine Art
