Open Plan Commission South London Gallery
15 August 2019
Over the London Summer I have been creating a project with kids at South London Gallery’s neighbouring Pelican Estate in Peckham.
“For the South London Gallery’s yearly Open Plan international residency programme, the Sydney-based artist Keg de Souza presents Convivial City. Four site-specific installations have been developed through a series of workshops with local children and families, taking inspiration from aspects of the Reggio Emilia pedagogical philosophy, which encourages child-led learning through touch, listening, observation and movement. Using this approach, children have explored the ways in which they experience the spaces of their housing estate through their own unique language.”
