…with no apparent intent – Yeah, that’s a great example of a successful artistic intervention in public space! Back in September, EPOS 257 created a nice urban installation in the city of Prague, fencing 50 square meters of public space. The whole thing withstood about 54 days not just because it was embedded in concrete, but also because the council had no idea how to handle the situation…
In the current society, our living space is defined by legal norms and regulations, the same way as fences demark the choices of our free movement.
Only by attempting to cross those boundaries, we learn how limited the space we live in really is – that we are not as free as it may initially seem. We are getting the sense that the individuality of today is destined to an existence amidst restrictions. (EPOS 257)
Brilliant action, nice documentation and great forwardness. That’s what I like, and you?
PS: Thanks for the e-mail EPOS!
