This interactive artwork takes an element commonly found in parks and playgrounds – the swing-set – and by questioning its conventional linear arrangement achieves a transformation that is abstract, spatial and political. The installation twists the typical experience to provide opportunities for confrontation and dialogue through the positioning of individuals in relation to the work and each other. Further by bringing a piece of playground equipment together with the charged spatial arrangement of political round-tables and corporate boardrooms, the installation takes a playful construct and positions it in the adult world.
The Full Circle Public Art project is located at 368 Auburn Avenue, at the corner of Hoyt Street in West Buffalo.
Full Circle was commissioned by C.S.1 Curatorial Projects and CEPA Gallery for CEPA’s West Side Lots Project.
