In 2021, This New Ground collective joined forces with acclaimed disabled digital artist, Jason Wilsher-Mills, to co-create a unique work of art. Imagined over a series of online workshops, the result was a striking 10-foot inflatable sculpture, which will be exhibited in the atrium of Riverside Studios from 17th – 26th June. The highly decorated sculpture features the landmarks and history of Hammersmith & Fulham, as well as drawings and words by This New Ground’s collective members. It’s an expression of vibrance, pride and the desire for visibility shared by the borough’s learning disabled residents.
We’ll be joined by the artist, Jason Wilsher-Mills and This New Ground Collective on Tuesday 21st June from 4pm for the launch party of High Vis Sculpture.
