In this unique artistic conversation between artist Céline Condorelli and theatre artists The Company, Project Arts Centre brings together the two prominent strands of their artistic programming. The gallery becomes home to five sculptures—Structure for Communicating with Wind, Structure for Listening, Structure for Preparing the Piano, Structure for Reading and Structure for Public Speaking—provocative hybrids of form and function, useful things and purposeless things.
Trained as an architect, and the author of the acclaimed Support Structures, Céline Condorelli has made it her artistic project to interrogate the unwritten assumptions of display structures, the authorative autonomy of the art object, and the singular identity of the artist. The gallery, and Céline Condorelli’s exhibition, will become the site of The Company’s creative process, as they work with these five structures for the duration of the exhibition.
