LIGHT-FOOTED LIGHT-FINGERED

Waves crashing on the Mediterranean shore can be subtly heard along Herald Street with the storm water drains echoing with the sound of Kostas ‘Coast to Coast’. Originally commissioned by the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST, Athens), the hard boundary of the kerb becomes a changing shoreline as public art becomes a fluid presence.

‘Light-footed light-fingered‘ brings together acts of subversion, sharing and taking to consider the artist’s role within public space. Public art defined as ‘art placed in the public domain’, is typically static and often monumental in its physical presence. In contrast this exhibition brings together a group of artists working within public space but leaving little physical evidence. Like pick pockets, lifting ideas and taking objects, tweets and gestures to form subtle interactions with the public, blur boundaries and offer new possibilities for what we might call public art.
