Buffet d'Art - 31.03.16Date: 31st March 2016
David will be showing a modest new work, The Wall, within the Kunsthaus Meinblau exhibition, Buffet d'Art. A playful interaction with the debates regarding walls, borders and xenophobic paranoia, The Wall, consists of a home installable table-top defensive barrier. Supplied complete with a selection of culturally diverse miniature figurines, the domestic user is invited to determine where to draw their dinner-time boundary and who will be allowed into their defensive perimeter. This 1:100 scale version does not yet incorporate Trump's 'Big beautiful door' so the choice of who the 'good ones' to be allowed in, has to be a more definitive statement. Future versions may incorporate angrier crowds, fatigued travellers, despairing children and a selection of ladders and missiles.
Buffet d'art showcases an array of artists, all of whom have been invited to bring along a buffet size piece of work, to be perused on a plinth. The show will be a melee of mismatched yet aspiring works, some with delusions of grandeur, others grubby with spillage and monotonous repetition, set to a medley of smooth and relaxing music by Brendan Lynch, designed to whet the senses and heighten your experience of these buffet-inspired memories.
