Antonia Wright: Control

Spinello Projects

22 Nov 201720 Dec 2017

“Control” is a performative sculpture in which Wright substitutes the body with the ubiquitous police barricade. “Control” viscerally captures today’s political climate and protest climate driven by fear and violence. The installation is activated through scheduled performances where the audience is instructed to stand within a confined space facing towards a supersized barricade. Like a firearm, several rounds of standard “crowd control” barriers are violently launched at the audience. Ricocheting off the steel bars, the barricade becomes a physical shield, protecting the crowd from harm’s way, while psychologically experiencing the violence.

Opening hours during Art Basel: Dec 5 – 10, 10am – 6pm; Dec 9, 10am – 12pm; performances start at 10am
