The Art Party Conference

Posted: 06/01/15

Take a Stand November 2013
Funded by Arts Council England
Shown at Bob & Roberta Smith's Arts Party Conference with Beth Cowley and Clare McCormack

Inspired by the temporary structures created during the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul 2013.
Three aluminium stands come together to form a seated space where group dialogue and debate can be easily facilitated. Facing outwards, the structures become raised podiums where a single person steps up onto a platform and is elevated providing a rare opportunity for public speaking. The conversation and discussion that happens inwards can then be vocalised outwards.
