PRAGUE INTERNATIONAL BIENNALE OF CONTEMPORARY ART 

 

The National Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic
Year: 2005

Working within the theme of Performative Space we developed an installation that focused on three key themes relating to the work of the studio. Performativity was interpreted in terms of the imaginative 'dance' which takes place within the design studio environment between projects which cross-fertilise and enter into dialogue, sometimes deliberately in an orchestrated manner, most often through less formal means of everyday actions and the shear presence of models, drawings, sketches, materials which inhabit the space we occupy as designers. 

The installation was presented to, discussed and developed with diploma students from Nottingham University who detailed and constructed the pieces in situ as part of their year studies under the tutelage of David Dernie, the curator of the exhibition
