We're bringing the seaside to the city this summer with our residency of Elements Gallery London curated by Rebecca Feiner. Drawing inspiration from our own personal backgrounds, as well as interviews with local East End residents, we'll celebrate the heyday of the British seaside whilst exploring contemporary issues with, perhaps, a suitable nudge and a wink.
You can follow our progress via the WYWH? blog link in the menu.
For our Summer Party, we focused on the 1964 seaside clashes between Mods & Rockers, customising a parka and a leather jacket and adding some new pennies.
Exhibition begins: 23rd June 2017
Ends: 8th September 2017
Viewing is from within LUBOMIROV / ANGUS-HUGHES during exhibitions Friday to Sunday 12-6pm, or by appointment. Elements Gallery at LUBOMIROV/ANGUS-HUGHES 26 Lower Clapton Rd, London E5 0PD.
Our beach hut contains the memories of local Hackney residents from the heyday of the British seaside.
Quiet British Accent is an artist duo. We began working together in 2011 and use a variety of signwriting and sewing techniques to explore our love of lettering, language and pop culture.
We also paint fake expansions of our QbA acronym on old pennies and leave them on the streets for people to find (follow us below, or search for #pennydrops for clues). These little calling cards aren't for sale, you have to find one.
Over the past six years, we've exhibited regularly, been featured by the likes of The Guardian, Design Week & Cool Hunting, taken part in the annual Art Car Boot Fair, worked on various commissions and workshops, and dropped a lot of pennies.
