(pre) Occupation   2011

With Anne Deeming

Emulsion paint and Plaster on wall

This collaborative work arose from an interest shared with Anne Deeming in relationships between artwork and public space.

 

The graphic form of the Science in Society book covers is reminiscent of the types of designs used to define and add interest to municipal spaces.

 

Deeming's plaster casts are placed over the wall painting in a formation that adheres to its own logic with no apparent relationship to, or influence from, the graphic arrangement onto which it is placed.

 

Both works fight to occupy and impose on the space through their own means.
