'In the Realm of Others' is a new collaboration between Project Art Works and De La Warr Pavilion intended to question perceptions about the process of making art. Over forty-five large and small-scale paintings, drawings and sculptures – produced by fourteen makers with profound intellectual impairment – are presented in a living, evolving installation that offers a rare flimpse into unknowable, creative states of being.
The exhibition is a choreographed navigation through the hidden worlds of Paul Colley, Stanley Ellis, Albert Geere, Neville Jermyn, David Marriott, Louise Newham, Sharif Persaud, Michelle Roberts, Jonathan Rogers, Carl Sexton, Brian Simpkin, George Smith, Sam Smith and Darryl Spencer, revealed through a changing exhibition of recent works selected from the 4,000 held in the Project Art Works collection. Periodically, the makers are present, producing work in the gallery witin a specially created studio environment together with the artist practitioners who support them.
Michelle Roberts, one of the exhibitors, was selected as an Outside In Award Winner in 2012, following her submission to our 2012 National exhibition. As a result of her win, she received a solo exhibition at Pallant House Gallery. Click here to read more about Michelle and her Outside In Award win.
