Amanda Mestrom @ Castor Projects

February 9, 2018 - March 17, 2018

Amanda Meström expects people to play, and she expects people to be playful, curious and conscientious in their play. So, can we play freely and democratically? How do we interact, how do we share objects? And, how might an object reveal the playground, map out the public domain, and the magic of private pleasure, solitude and quietness (even in a crowd)

By making interactive work Amanda is asking what the gallery space can be, and what our expectations of the gallery space are? By negotiating the health & safety web of inconvenience Amanda is working out how safe a piece of art needs to be. Can an artwork be allowed to be unsafe, even dangerous? Should an artwork be allowed to be dangerous? What level of risk are we willing to engage with? What is the threshold of the gallery space, when does it begin and end, and what can an artwork be? These are all questions posed by Amanda’s work in Doing it in the Park, Doing it after Dark.
