At Play @ New Exhibitions at South Hill Park

18 April - 21 June 2009

Opening reception: Friday 17 April, 6pm - 8.30pm. All welcome!

I am delighted to invite you to the opening reception of the new At Play season at South Hill Park on Friday 17 April, 6pm - 8.30pm.

At Play in the Bracknell Gallery and Tall Hall explores ideas about play: making magic and being transformed, passing the time, messing about and making a mess, being yourself and pretending to be someone else, having secrets, making dens, belonging to gangs, creating rules and rituals, taking dares and chances, making and exploring small worlds. The exhibition re-creates in both adults and children a sense of what it is like to be a child at play. It encourages the viewer to gaze, to remember, to touch, to explore, to trust, to think, to laugh, to peer, to concentrate, to join in, to bend down, to take a chance … and to play. At Play 1 features work by Marco Cali, Marcin Gajewski, Rosie Gibson, Judy Goldhill & Sophie Loss, Susan Eyre, Cathy Hart & Esther Jervis, Aaron Head, Pernille Holm-Mercer, Ingrid Jensen, Philip Lee, Siobhan McAuley, Samantha Mogelonsky, Fedor Pavlov-Andreevich, Kay Sentance, Liz Whiteman Smith, John Tenniel and Cally Trench. At Play 2 returns on 17 April – 20 June 2010 for a mansion-wide exhibition. At Play 1 and 2 are co-curated by Cally Trench and Outi Remes.

The opening reception also celebrates the opening of the Images 32 group exhibition in the mansion spaces, presenting the best of British contemporary illustration and is the most prestigious and comprehensive illustration award show in the UK.

The At Play season includes the following live art events: Philip Lee explores extreme forms of child’s play and pleasure in doing something that an adult is not supposed to do. Lee’s Sitting Slip is performed on 17 April 2009 during the opening reception, 6.00pm – 7.30pm. Lee’s performance is followed by Dead Radio, a performance by Fedor Pavlov-Andreevich on 17 April 2009 during the opening reception, 7.30pm – 8.30pm. The audience is invited to twiddle the artist’s knobs making him physically switch from station to station – signing, reading news, quoting popular radio shows – all from the Soviet Union era. Also, don’t miss Sandcastles by Kay Sentance in the Bracknell town centre and the arts centre during the exhibition and opening day. Sandcastles, far from a beach, aims to provide playful reminders and surprising chance encounters between the sandcastles and the public.

I hope you enjoy At Play at South Hill Park.
