24/7 Outdoor Installation
Royal Society of Sculptors, 108 Old Brompton Road, Dora House, London SW7 3RA
This autumn we are excited to welcome to Dora House a SKIP Gallery's Graphic Rewilding intervention.
SKIP Gallery is an ongoing collaborative artwork, created by artistic duo Baker & Borowski. Their idea is to offer opportunities for artistic interventions in unexpected places, utilising a specially modified skip. As an artistic counterbalance to the severe lack of green space in cities, Lee and Catherine co-founded Graphic Rewilding in order to create vast, flower inspired, maximalist, attention grabbing, positivity inducing artworks and immersive environments in unexpected places.
In June 2023, in a review for the Guardian Alice Fisher wrote: ‘Lee Baker and Catherine Borowski have brought delight to many dull urban sites with their work as public art curators. As the driving force behind SKIP Gallery, the pair have had these waste containers turned into houses, libraries and even held art classes in them. But their latest venture gives a new imaginative twist to city landscapes. They’re bringing flowers to the streets with their Graphic Rewilding project.‘
On Wednesday 8 November, we hosted 'Hack Your Happiness Levels in 20 Minutes' a talk by Lee Baker, Co-founder and Curator at SKIP Gallery and Lead Artist at Graphic Rewilding, in which he argued that beauty isn't in the eye of the beholder; it's in the brain.
