Playground Twist at Bermondsey Project Space brings together the work of three artists whose work considers themes of childhood and play in all its many guises. Whilst, at first sight, their work seems different in approach and material concerns, notions of ‘childhood’ play an essential role in each of their practices. This exhibition will explore the imprint of childhood upon the adult artist, and the influence of making art alongside – and at times in collaboration with – children. Drawing on their own experiences as parents they explore the observed, experienced, and reflected notions of play and childhood. The exhibition will consist of paintings by Caroline Thomson and David Caines of varying scale and wall-based sculptures and paintings by Lindsay Mapes. This project will bring into focus the influence of childhood within the field of art, a subject which has frequently been overlooked. The artists’ aim is to reignite some of the lost sensations of wonder, mystery, confusion and anxiety that we feel so strongly discovering the world for the first time. Can we still access those emotions now we are no longer children? Find out more
