Caledonian Road Olympic Torch Project

On Thursday 26th July at 8.00am the Olympic Torch Relay comes through Caledonian Road. The Torch Relay marks the opening of the Olympic Celebration. 

Ace&Lion has been invited to create an art piece to mark this historic occasion by Team Cally.

We would like to make something with photographs that capture the moment the torch passes through our neighbourhood.

To do this we would like to use photographs taken by you on a camera or mobile phone of the torch passing your home, shop or position on Caledonian Road that morning.

We will collect the photographs after the torch passes and make a collage from a selection of them. Please e-mail photographs to info@aceandlion.org with your name and contact details.

Anyone who contributes a photograph will be invited to an Open Day at Ace&Lion’s project space later this year where the piece will be exhibited. The piece will also be shown in other places.

Ace&Lion is a group of artists based on Caledonian Road.

    I’m afraid that some of us don’t recognise the concept of an “Olympic Celebration”.

    The Olympics are a corporate-promoting, public-money-consuming, militarised, body-fascism-inducing, gender-discriminatory, corrupt, sweatshop-reliant, home-destroying, environmentally disastrous jamboree for the elite. The event deprives millions of ordinary Londoners of the right to go about our lives without risking life and limb and arrest if we dare to try to carry on as normal.

    And as for the torch relay – what is it apart from an absurd manifestation of media-induced hysteria and mysticism? And, of course, it has nothing to do with the Olympics, having been invented by the Nazis.

    I would recommend this alternative view of Olympic torches:
