Reflections on architecture
We had planned with some apprehension to locate the Transient Gallery around a wellhead at the entrance to the Arsenale in Camiello Tana. It offered the highest potential footfall and was less residential (unlike Campo Ruga previously), however there was an increased risk for upsetting those at the Biennale and it was considerably further from the studio than anything we’d tried before.
And so after borrowing a trolley from a local horticultural centre and recruiting a few willing volunteers (Dele, Jonathan, Lottie, Ian, Sandy and of course Anne who was instrumental in attracting foreign speaking visitors into the gallery) we were up again.
With a bit of persuasion we (well Anne) even managed to convince a pair of passing buskers to play within the gallery - you could hear the music on approach, you just couldn't see it. This added a level of intrigue which for us really went beyond our ambitions.
People were curious what the surface finish was and how it was achieved.
The return leg was a little hairy but we made it back without dropping it in the canal.
