Couched - performative sculptural work (2018)

Dates: 04 Oct - 22 Dec

Show Time: 11am - 8pm

Tickets: €0.00 (Admission Free)

Opening: 6pm, 4 October 2018

In this new performative commission Christopher Mahon further develops his most recent sculptural experiments using his family couch. The couch was designed by his father and has been re-upholstered using silk-screened images of his mother’s artwork

The piece proposes to present itself as a complex item: a changing sculptural constellation, a conversational corner and a performative platform, which ties in to the Active Archive – Slow Institution project. It weaves together various art and intimate histories, spaces conducive to confiding, sensuality, and the need to lounge.

Couched will be activated through readings and performative events.
