The symbol of the enclosed garden appears throughout history and across cultures. It is Eden, a symbol of innocence, Paradise, Avalon, Arcadia, home of the Fountain of Life and the Tree of Knowledge.

This site-specific exhibition shows work by 20 contemporary artists created for the beautiful and contemplative Walled Garden in Brockwell Park, an oasis in urban South London.

They have reflected on The Garden, cocooned from the dangerous world, isolated from evil, crime, fear, envy and want that exists outside. This mini-world experience of the walled garden is an illusion. Innocence is an illusive thing, often what appears safe, innocent and protected (a Garden of Eden) is the most harmful.

The exhibits also reference the mythologies of the garden, from the classical myths of the Mulberry tree, sacred to Athena, the golden apples of the Hesprides, 'Et in Arcadia Ego' to the the Green Man and The Singing Ringing Tree.

Other of the artists investigate naturalness and genetic modification, naturalisation (of plants and people), and the difference between the Exotic and desirable flower with the 'foreign' and undesirable weed.
