OVER 20 ARTISTS present new works as POST returns to Merton in south London with Away Day. Engaging with suburban spaces of leisure, Away Day is a series of site-specific artworks for three public parks: Mostyn Gardens in Morden, Wandle Park in Colliers Wood and Ravensbury Park in Mitcham. Diverse interventions, performances and temporary artworks accost visitors with imagined alternative realities and new mappings of these spaces during weekends in May and June.
Founded in 2008, POST is the new peer-led UK network for artists who respond to place. POST artists work in areas with which they have a personal involvement, staging site-specific shows that reflect the diverse practices of the members. Projects often engage with over- looked and disused spaces and investigate notions of public space.
