Taking inspiration from Netherlandish artist Hieronymus Bosch’s triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights, the exhibition explores the UK’s privatised public space as a non-binary issue. As Bosch explored the middle ground of Earth between the extremes of Heaven and Hell, the exhibition suggest privatised public space also sits between two extremes: the utopia of common land before the Enclosures Act of the 18th century and the dystopia of total privatisation. The themes of the exhibition are based on very British issues – including pubs, high streets, garden squares and toilets – with seven different types of privatised public spaces reimagined as inclusive experiences through immersive installations.
