This monochromatic performance-architecture is an open platform in the urban environment, welcoming everyday events to activate its meaning and providing a site in the manner of Speaker’s Corner.  This installation presents a certain approach to performative practice in the closely-linked fields of contemporary art and architecture, representative of Didier Faustino’s obsession with the location of the body in private and public space.
