If you go down to the park this weekend then you're in for a big surprise - it will be overrun with sculptures.

The Cannizaro Park exhibition, run annually for more than 20 years, will feature work by 23 students from Wimbledon College of Art, seleted by guest curator Sarah B Davies and college alumni Helen Sturgess and Jess Fuller.

The works are designed specifically for the landscape of the heritage park, with a number of artists choosing to focus on the history and the enchantment of the area this year, examining the notion of myth and reality.

The ornate balustrades around the Italian Gardens will be clothed in leather from old ballet shoes, the networks of mole holes will be presented in plaster, the changing position of a picnic blanket will be marked out using a GPS Tracker and everyday moments that ordinarily go unnoticed will be celebrated on commemorative plaque.

Works proposed for the main lawn include a large rotating wheel and an intriguing amalgamation of found umbrellas.

Davies, who exhibited herself 10 years ago, said: “The visitor to this year’s exhibition is promised ambitious works that offer an imaginative response to the location, an in-depth analysis of public life and a significant contribution to the practice of public art as a whole."
