Wild New Territories is an exhibition showing new visual art, media and performance works that explore the interplay between the urban and the wild.

The artists are a broad cross-section of award winning and emerging, artists from a variety of geo-political backgrounds in an unusually natural setting: Camley Street Natural Park in the middle of Kings Cross.  Inhabited by hundreds of diverse species, not normally found in the middle of a concrete metropolis, these wild species will be joined by established artists including Gillian Wearing, Michael Landy, Gordon Cheung, and American artist, Edgar Heap of Birdsworking in a variety of challenging and site specific ways. This is a world touring exhibition premiering in London then moving to Vancouver, then Berlin.

The London exhibition will take place from September 19th 2012, running concurrently at two locations:

    Thanks for this Sophie, brilliant. Any chance however of giving Blooming Britain by Henry/Bragg a mention, it’s our work thats going down the canal. Cheers again Julie Henry.

  2. One of the things you can do at Wild New Territories is to sit in Camley St Natural Park and immerse yourself into the Colombian Amazon… with a sound and interactive outdoor installation by jamie griffiths, Rob Scharein and Diego Samper.

  3. Inside Camley Street Park, along the Regents Canal, you can sit and eat your lunch ‘in the Colombian Amazon’ with an interactive sound and fireflies installation by jamie griffiths, Rob Scharein and Diego Samper. The fireflies only come out at night however.. so you should be able to look at for them while you walk along the canal path if you look across to the park. http://www.jamiegriffiths.com/wefan/
