REST, dust sheets, dimensions 10 x 32 x 40 m. Installation views Museo Arte Público de Madrid. Commissioned by Madrid Abierto, 2006
Two open air works, Secret Garden and Rest, recalling procedures of urban renewal and the diminution of a place’s make-up in favour of its relaunch. The enclosures hint at something happening from which we are excluded. They remove sections of public space from the public, making them inaccessible or invisible and conversely give overexposed sites a break from the incessant expectations of visitors. By modifying our perception and use of the contexts they are placed in, they create temporary heterotopias that could only be regained through transgression.
