PUBLIC ART RE-ENACTMENT SOCIETY Installation series.2012
“Public art is the only art that doesn’t have a public – only passers by” (Sloganeering Beech, 2005)
The public art re-enactment society seeks to put the ‘public’ into public art. often large scale, publicly funded and situated in a fixed location, public art projects have become symptomatic of ‘place-making’; a feature of urban regeneration throughout Britain, especially in coastal locations. The ‘re-enactments’ documented for this project use the essence of the original work and the ‘passer by’ is invited to become the ‘participant’.
With a membership of one and no funding, the public_art_re-enactment_society alludes to participatory art and public engagement that ultimately manifests itself in an ‘absence of presence’. an associated Facebook page invites new members.
