Anne Hardy FIELD Installation Timelapse

Posted

Watch a short video of Anne Hardy and the Modern Art Oxford production team working to create Pitch Black, a smooth echo / A scoop with a shelter, for the exhibition FIELD which opens on 7 November 2016.

“This large-scale installation uses a scoop of blue carpet to form a field: a surface that the work, and you, are contained in. The shape of this structure is determined by offcuts of hardboard I had lying around the studio: as with a previous work, Two Joined Fields, I wanted to take a found shape to build from, which was not a typical or familiar architectural form, that could exist as a free-floating architectural object. Precariously propped up on cast concrete shapes, it is visible as a complete object” – Anne Hardy, 2015.
