Realm is an experimental residency-based commission between three London based artists Hazel Brill, Richard Downes and Mr X.
Referred to as the ‘’Lungs of London’’ since the 18th century, our public parks are crucial to our livelihoods as urban dwellers. They provide an essential physical and mental space and sanctuary, enabling meditation, rejuvenation, pleasure and escape.
Hazel Brill is a visual artist based in Southwark invited by CGP London; artist Richard Downes is a socially engaged activist, poet and photographer who was selected following a call out by Outside In; and Mr X, an accomplished artist-maker, was selected by our friends at Bethlem Gallery.
Over the period of thirteen days, the artists will develop a new collective body of work that will manifest at CGP London as an immersive multi-media installation, responding to the gallery’s beautiful Southwark Park setting.
The exhibition and works therein juxtapose three contrasting methods of production and aesthetics. The artists will create an enticing realm of possibility and refuge from everyday life; open to all to explore and retreat.
Realm is a co-commission between CGP London, Outside In and Bethlem Gallery. The artists were invited to participate by each of the three partner organisations, collectively commissioning them to create an enveloping experience and new body of work.
