Project Overview

Coinciding with the London 2012 Olympic Games, Film and Video Umbrella and De La Warr Pavilion presented four commissions of moving image artworks on the theme of sporting excellence. Working in collaboration with top athletes and scientists, four internationally acclaimed artists considered the state of being ‘in the zone’ - the way in which athletes achieve a heightened sense of performance in which body and mind are operating in unison, at maximum impact and with optimum ‘flow’.

A series of talks, events and workshops were programmed to accompany the Everything Flows exhibition. Each event intended to offer an insight into the creative process of the artists, illuminating the biomedical science behind the works in the exhibition, and providing an opportunity for audiences to find out more. See the Events section of the Everything Flows website for more details.
