Equipment is a set of play structures in different scales, creating a link between usually strictly separated categories of the ‘exhibition’ and ‘art in public space’. Allowing for intimate contact with cultural objects, these works can be used and touched. They have multiple lives as they make reference to works by others, and function as a rehearsal for future playgrounds, while fulfilling spatial and social functions acting as a stage for daily and cultural life. In combining an exhibition, its interface to the city and a sculpture-as-public-space, the work invites us to consider the exhibition as the first step of making art public, and art in public space as a potential social testing ground.
Equipment was commissioned by Significant Other, Vienna, more info can be found here.
