Grandstand is conceived as a site, a stage set for discussion. The installation activates the Gymnasium Gallery as a democratic forum with aim of engaging the public into seeing art as political, as performative, and as participatory.

Throughout the exhibition local artists, performers and groups will be invited to use the installation for meetings, performances or discussion – with the proviso that the events are open to all members of the public.

A sound piece and map accompany the Grandstand that explores the artist’s search for the ‘local’ through seemingly innocuous objects around Berwick Upon Tweed.

Grandstand is currently installed at the Gymnasium Gallery, Berwick Upon Tweed till May 4, 2014 and will be traveling down to Newcastle Upon Tyne in 2016.
