A Playground by Marvin Gaye Chetwynd

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd’s playground is inspired by fantasies, a piece of local history, and robots. The playground is named after a 4000 year old sculpture found near by. “The Idol” is designed by Marvin Gaye Chetwynd in 2015 for the Abbey Leisure Centre, which is just outside of London. Chetwynd is a British artist who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2012 for her “carnivalesque performances and sculptural installations.” You can learn more about her career and this playground in the above interview by local primary school students. She was commissioned by the Liverpool Biennial to make a new video with children that will be part of the “Children’s Episode” in this summer exhibition.
