New Represented Artist: Anna Horton Cremin

Mark Devereux Projects are proud to announce Anna Horton Cremin will be joining our represented artists programme.

Anna Horton Cremin uses games and play to bring people together in new and unexpected ways. She uses playful interventions to talk about complex issues including what we want our future world to be like. Her practice is currently looking at how the first playgrounds were created: built by children out of the materials they found in the destruction and dereliction of WWII. These acts of building and playing started the adventure playground movement, allowing children to take risks and create their own environments. Through Anna’s practice she wants to encourage audiences to take risks by building their own play spaces, giving chances for people to imagine alternative futures together.

I am excited about working with Mark Devereux Projects; having been part of the artist professional development programme with Heart of Glass at the beginning of the year, I feel working with them will really enable me to be ambitious in the development of my practice. I am looking forward to making new collaborations and connections that will enrich my thinking.” [Anna Horton Cremin]

We met Anna during our recent artist professional development programme in collaboration with Heart of Glass and were hugely impressed by her varied approaches to the key themes within her practice. Working with Anna will provide an exciting new challenge for us, making projects with new partners and in different types of spaces.” [Mark Devereux]
