Is art torn between the commodity and the gift, the supermarket and the church?
Lee Hassall will use the gallery as a repository and home base from which to engage with the surrounding neighbourhood, gathering impressions via exchanges with objects, paraphernalia and people, culminating in a final performance action.
On March 14th and 15th, audience is invited to the gallery from 6-8PM to witness the growing installation and to donate a gift for the artist. Donated items or materials may be altered, deconstructed, disappeared or hybridized. All gifts will be considered and engaged with, and will become a part of the final public performance on March 16th.
On March 15th, Lee Hassall will give an artist talk in the gallery from 6-8PM, in the midst of his growing in-progress installation.
