Hospitalfield have commissioned artist Mick Peter to develop a major new outdoor exhibition Gerroff!! (or User Feedback) to open at the Launch of the Garden & Garden Buildings on 27 May 2021. The new artworks are Hospitalfield’s Annual Sculpture Commission for 2021.
Gerroff!! (or User Feedback) is a series of scenes that create a narrative trail at Hospitalfield humorously addressing the ‘rules’ of engagement with art. Mick Peter’s playful installations incorporate imagery influenced by illustration and commercial art. His sculptures are often enlarged drawings, used to animate the narrative of his exhibitions which satirise the symbols of power and authority as well as art making itself.

Recent group shows include ‘Voyage au long cours’ at FRACNormandie Caen (2018), Natural Selection’ at Galerie 5, Angers (2016), France and ‘Corps narratifs’ at the Domaine départemental de Chamarande, Chamarande, France (2016).
