The exhibition runs until April 1 and focuses on the experience of childhood

Artworks inspired by the experience of childhood are on show in Homerton.

The exhibition Forget Who You Are focuses on focuses on scale, imaginary worlds and anthropomorphism, and includes paintings, sculptures, installations and film.

It has been created by contemporary artists and members of Core Art – a gallery and culture centre in Homerton High Street, promoting a positive approach to mental health.

Event co-ordinator Pete Bennett said: “They have been trying to avoid the sentimental and mawkish artistic reaction that toys and childhood can produce.

They have taken a childlike perception of confused scale, and they are tapping into imagined worlds to produce new images - one of the artists has made a model of a building from a child’s drawing using modern CAD programs.

The exhibition can be seen at Core Arts, 109 Homerton High Street until Friday April 1, from Tuesday to Friday, 11am - 4pm.

Admission is by appointment only, call 020 8533 3500.
