Polly's Picture Show invited 19 artists to create new work. Following the ideas of artist Constant Nieuwenhuys – a proponent of experimentation and creative play – Polly’s Picture Show filled the chapel with wood, paint, chalk, a photocopier and many other materials to literally create a playground for artists. For several weeks, the space continuously changed: sculptures were built, demolished or used for photos, video and/or sound recordings. For the exhibition at the end of the work period, Polly’s Picture Show composes a presentation with the created works. This presentation is both exhibition, collective installation, and studio, consisting of a combination of existing objects, artworks and documentation. Polly’s Playground blurs and redefines the boundaries between artist and curator, between work, object and presentation.
