Pump House Gallery presents an exhibition building on “The Committee”, a 2013 work by artist Pilvi Takala. For the project, which was funded by the Emdash Award, Takala invited some children from a youth centre in Bow, London to spend her £7,000 award in any way they wished. They decided to design and produce a custom-made bouncy castle called “Five Star Bouncy House”, which could now be used by them and hired out to raise funds for the youth centre.
