As respite from the Re:bourne ‘machine’, I have been doing some research into Landscape and Environment Art; think Christo, Dennis Oppenheim and Andy Goldsmith. I stumbled across this;
(Environmental Art)…is a “spatialisation of cultural politics”, a radical rethinking of the intersection between social relations, space and the community. This rethinking can lead to a kind of IN-BETWEEN or THIRD SPACE, a lived space of radical openness and unlimited scope, where all histories and geographies, all times and places, are immanently presented and represented. Edward Soja
My thoughts exactly!
I hope on some level Re:bourne is able to achieve some of these things. At its best it will be a ‘creative disruption’ or ‘interruption’ that enables the community to inhabit a transgressive space between bricks and mortar and day to day life; it will a critique of what is already there , an invitation to change literally and emotionally. At worst, it will simply enrich shoppers experience as they collect their frozen peas from Iceland.
