‘Surveillance’, ART+ARCH Infinite Exhibition Profile
Brisbane / Queensland / Australia
“Surveillance, by Cida de Arago, Christine McCombe and Phil Heywood, are made self evident by its title. Yet the experience of the work is considerably more benign than that of the mechanisms which actually observe our uses and abuses of so-called public space.”
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.”
