Pilvi Takala, The Committee, 2014

Wednesday 11th January - Monday 27th March 2017

Pump House Gallery: Pilvi Takala (Wednesday 11 January – Monday 27 March 2017)

** Unfortunately, due to flooding, Pump House Gallery is closed until further notice **

Pump House Gallery presents an exhibition building on The Committee, a 2013 project by artist Pilvi Takala.

For the project funded by the Emdash Award, Takala invited a group of children from a youth centre in Bow, London to spend her £7,000 award in any way they wished. They decided to design and produce a custom-made bouncy castle called “Five Star Bouncy House”, which could be used by them and hired out to raise funds for the youth centre. In Takala’s video that follows the process, the children explain how they decided to spend the prize money, discussing the process of decision-making and the values that guided them.

As part of the exhibition the “Five Star Bouncy House” will be erected on weekends when the weather permits.
