This project was presented as part of the Folkestone Fringe Art Festival, parallel to the Folkestone Art Triennial in England. The artwork is a reminder of the constant cycle of construction and deconstruction in which society is immersed. From colonialism to consumism. An endless loop of apropiation and transformation.
A column of the pavilion was removed and replaced with a pitchfork made from an old telegraph pole. After that, chopsticks were made from the wood of the original column during a 5 days performance by the artist.
This artwork was made in collaboration with Stephen Palmer from the Folkestone Shedders, a group of ex-military personnel working with wood. In Stephen experience during his sailor days, Wednesdays were meant to “Make and Mend” anything that needed repair in the boat.
