Buffet d'Art - 04.11.16Date: 4th November 2016
As the US election approaches, David will again be showing his installation, The Wall, within the touring exhibition, Buffet d'Art. The show will be open on Friday and run for a few intense days at the Ambika P3 gallery in London.
The Wall is a playful interaction with the debates regarding walls, borders and xenophobic paranoia. It 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.
Private View: 4th November, 6.30-8.30pm - all welcome.
