NAVIGATION DIAGRAMS, Site specific performative outdoor installation
MK Gallery, Milton Keynes,2013
After a period of interaction with Milton Keynes, its people and architecture , Elena Cologni proposes a site specific performative installation. The public is provided with a set of parameters and props to navigate the space opposite the gallery. Their action in space and interaction with each other will create meanings within the given context. Cologni wants to point the attention to the role of trust within socially engaged practices within our everyday social realm.
The artist was introduced by Caterina Albano who has followed the development of the project.The body of work is part of the multidisciplinary approach of the project Rockfluid, where site-specific art practice is underpinned by elements of geography, cognitive psychology and philosophy. The exercise creates the physical and psychological conditions to enhance an awareness of the perception the body in space.
The event is curated by Simon Wright
