Each year the Whitechapel Gallery invites a contemporary artist to create new work for the Chilldrens Art Commission. Following in the footsteps of Jake and Dinos Chapman, Eva Rothschild, and Jessica Voorsanger, this year's artists are Simon and Tom Bloor. The duo present a new body of work developed from workshops carried out at Hermitage Primary School, Tower Hamlets, where small clay sculptures made by the artists were crushed by children, encouraging a sense of rebellion within the school. These clay forms, cast in chalk, are available for visitors to draw on the Gallery walls and are presented alongside prints documenting the process of creation through destruction.
