The People’s Forest | Gayle Chong Kwan

October 13, 2017 - March 18, 2018

A major new contemporary visual art project which explores the history, politics, and people of London’s ancient woodland, Epping Forest.

Described by Queen Victoria as ‘The People’s Forest’, this new work looks to Epping Forest for its inspiration. Through two years of research and running creative participatory activities, Chong Kwan is developing a significant new body of work, which considers the forest as a site of shared resources and competing claims, as a liminal space between rural and urban, tensions between capital and common, as well as examining local issues and the impact of globalisation on communities.
