The Club Under My House
For the inaugural Open Plan commission on Sceaux Gardens estate, Morag working with the young residents built an installation for the newly launched Art Block, a space for local children and families to make things, be creative and play during free weekly workshops.
Working with Morag, local young residents designed the Art Block space through workshops exploring pattern making, poetry and 3D design which were then realised by Morag in the space and exhibited in the Art Block gallery.
Building on the gallery’s work with local residents over the past decade, Open Plan aims to further challenge notions of what contemporary art can do and who can be involved in it.
Art Block is visually transformed by invited artists twice a year. The inaugural commission was by Morag creating The Club Under My House — named in a workshop by one of the young residents.
