NEW HAVEN
act.2″RETREAT”

Opening 14 December 2012, 17:00
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop – Old Building
25 Hawthornvale Edinburgh EH6 4JT

Following act.1 Spolia, Act.2 Retreat is the second intervention taking place in the space of the old Sculpture workshop. The work is consisted of a spatial intervention upon the fabric of the old studio spaces and of a series of video and recorded performances which were done in response to this process.

The buildings progressing ruination until its utter demotion in combination with its newly acquired “illicit identity” as a precarious and free space has become a stage for exploring ideas relating to transformation, loss and sanctity at an immersive scale.

Act.2, being the last act in the building before its demolition signifies a call for the last viewing or the last visit of the building as a formation of interior spaces with its prerecorded life, history and function.
