When it comes to the world of art, thinking needs to be adjusted to appreciate the full picture. It isn’t good enough to just build a plinth. You need to understand where it will be position, what it is for and how the whole look and feel will affect the finished artwork.
We feel very honoured to have been asked to build several plinths and display cabinets for Liverpool Biennial 2012.
Here are the photos of the largest installation – 12 freestanding pods to house 46 inch plasmas and DVDs, computers. They were painted in TV white as they were not to be too obvious. The whole idea is for the visitors to stand in the middle of the circle and get immersed in the display on the screens. Around this installation we also made 7 smaller plinths to have projectors fitted to them for other installations.
The artists are Mikhael Subotzky and Patrick Waterhouse and the installation is in the Cunard Building in Liverpool and will be there until 25th November.
