With this work we are investigating the notion of the plinth; how it acts functionally in elevating and supporting artwork but also how it is perceived. We initially asked different London art institutions to donate to us what they felt was a ‘standard’ plinth. Using the body and clay to elevate and support the plinth we are reversing its function to then turn this back upon itself. We have re-made this work with plinths from the art institutions of Rome, in its new context.
We've collected 475 € which will be donated in the coming days to UNICEF’s ‘Children of Syria’ emergency fund. A special thanks to every artist who chose to join Celeste Prize between 10-17 May donating 20% of entry fees to the fund >> Read all
