"The site-specific installation Displacements deals with situation, where the gallery space has become the subject of the work. A public sphere and its social aspect are inseparable from the individual psychological condition of experiencing it. The work takes the form of exhibition as a medium, executed through a system of sculptural, special and color interventions within the space of CCS Bard Galleries, establishing a spacio-temporal framework that responds to the theme of Derangement and determines the total experience of the exhibition."

Koshirakura Landscape Workshop, Japan, 2002
In a close relationship with the community and landscape, our team constructed a TEMPORARY ROOF STRUCTURE to house 200 people. We used locally available materials, ‘surplus’ timber – off-cuts from the timber industry, discarded tree trunks and locally made rice-straw rope for the construction. The structure was designed for the annual celebration of the MOMIJI MATSURY (Maple Tree Festival).
