Playing on Synthetic Grass

Katherine Bourne, Amy Bruce, Holly Dixon, Jack Poppert and Sivaan Walker

Opening Tues 16 April 6-8pm
Continues until 27 April


When Playing on Synthetic Grass, we are in our element, in the playground, the artificial space that looks nothing like the real world, but is designed to be safe. A space for experimentation, learning and growth. We don't work, we play, and we don't make works, we make games. Playing on Synthetic Grass brings us back to our childhood, the playgrounds, the playpens and the various play things. The world around us is forgotten as we reimagine our inconsequential childhood through the bizarre fantasy of this hyperreal synthetic material.
