Save Event: Views & Vistas, North London Park Life

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Views & Vistas is a site-specific sculpture by London artist, Grace Adam, taking place in Haringey's Priory Park. Six Viewing Gates invite park users to slow down, stop and enjoy the park and their urban environment.


Through her work, Grace Adam hopes “to make interventions that enliven, inform and question, that awaken us to parts of our city that we no longer see clearly or perhaps even notice.”

Adam has constructed six Viewing Gates made from tall tapered, notched and stained posts. Views & Vistas invites Priory Park users to negotiate and engage with the park in different ways and offer slightly altered routes and unexpected views and vistas. The Gates will encourage commuters and other park users to deviate from their default walking patterns, to slow down, to notice, to formulate responses and opinions on this piece and their park

Views & Vistas is a contribution to the debate on public architecture and public spaces more widely. Adam’s methodology is to change the space, thereby changing the way it can be negotiated and to observe and seek responses to this.

The installation will be accompanied by a series of public engagement events and participation in The Big Draw, a unique opportunity to draw with Grace in Priory Park.

A downloadable map with information about the objects and views that are framed, as well as a short survey on attitudes to Priory Park and 21st century public spaces is available from www.graceadam.com​
