‘Dining Room’, ART+ARCH Infinite Exhibition Profile
Brisbane / Queensland / Australia
“Dining Room, by Simone Eisler and Andrew Steen is founded on an idea about the residential occupation of certain ‘forgotten’ spaces by the homeless. It offers a delicate and engaging image of the city as a place which could be furnished and decorated as you would a domestic interior.”
As part of the biennial Brisbane Festival, ART + ARCH Infinite exhibition consisted of eleven constructed temporary artworks, one unrealised artwork and a performance piece. “In proposing the collaborative ephemeral art project ART+ARCH Infinite, Professor Steffen Lehmann sought to engage with ideas about the place of the public realm – to bring to mind, through the constructed outcomes of collaborations between artists and designers, the potential of our experience of the city to provoke encounter.”
