Pollen Collective is delighted to announce their first London exhibition. Nine multidisciplinary artists have developed new ways of working in response to the challenges of the past year. The bold new work celebrates our relationships with domestic and natural spaces through material innovation and collaboration.

Faced with the constraints of the Covid pandemic, Pollen Collective artists have produced an uplifting exhibition of beautifully handcrafted, enigmatic work. The unique setting of One Paved Court echoes the show’s themes of domesticity, shelter, and community, and showcases the diversity of experimental work across a variety of media.

By utilising technological platforms, socially distant meetings and postal art chains, the artists have been able to make, share and collaborate in the true spirit of a collective. Pollen Collective artists have worked together to weave poetry into delicate paper cloth, to create mixed-media collages, photographs, sculptures, paintings, and installations that interrogate our experiences of confinement and isolation, as well as their diametric equivalents.

The exhibition includes an exciting collaborative art project which engages with the local Richmond community. School children, art students and seniors have been invited to respond to a visual and word prompt provided by the Collective. Their work will be showcased at One Paved Court during the exhibition.

‘Discovering the making of Art has been, for me, the great and happy discovery of Lockdown. I’d never tried my hand before (despite being in my 70s), but the focussed creativity has brought light in a very dark world.’ -Jane Dewey, participant in Pollen’s Community Project

Images of the exhibition, artists’ biographies and other video content will be available on the Pollen Collective website. A virtual Artists’ Talk is scheduled for 13 May 5 – 6 pm.
