Vandalism and Art

Investigating public space and the paradox of unintentional creation, the discussion considers how artists might appropriate acts of vandalism


Simon and Tom Bloor talk about ideas developed during their recent residency at Flat Time House where they researched the intentional destruction of public art and the construction of degenerate street furniture. Artist Nils Norman, curator Jes Fernie and art historian Richard Clay discuss the relationship of creation to destruction, with particular reference to arts relationship to public space and the urban environment. The discussion is chaired by Jo Melvin.

Investigating public space and the paradox of unintentional creation, the discussion considers how artists might appropriate acts of vandalism and how those acts might be seen as an extreme abstraction or performance. This event coincides with Simon and Tom Bloor's current exhibition, Residency Works at FTHo, and also draws on ideas of urban play and utopian pursuit explored in their 2011 exhibition at SLG, Happy Habitat Revisted.
