They Are Here
They Are Here is a collaborative practice steered by Helen Walker & Harun Morrison. They are based on the River Lea and London. They have worked together as They Are Here since 2006, often extending our collaboration to include those from all walks of life.
Many works can be read as a series of context specific games. The entry, invitation or participation can be as significant as the game’s conditions and structure. Through these games they seek to create ephemeral systems and temporary, micro-communities that offer an alternate means of engaging with a situation, history or ideology.
They Are Here work across media and types of site particularly civic spaces. Institutions we have developed or presented work include: Camden Arts Centre, CCA Glasgow, Furtherfield, Grand Union, Konsthall C (Stockholm), National Theatre Studio, Tate Britain, Tate Modern, South London Gallery and STUK (Leuven, Belgium).
