The installation is a response to the Art Fair as a semi-private and semi-public space, it’s general rules and various economies. As part of the work, I was constantly present in the installation. Hosting conversations, offering free coffees to both visitors and other exhibitors as a means to escape at least partly the capitalist aspects of the art fair.
Many of the objects that were presented were in one way or the other designed to host myself and others. By taking my own bodily presence as a starting point, an environment for hanging out, loitering and conversing was created.
