1989-91: Projections - outdoor site specific projections, UK.
This century, Duchamp, Cage, Schwitters and others have all exploited the artistic use of found objects, taken unaltered from the mundane world and finding a new life as art works in galleries. A recent exhibition by Australian artist Sean Loughrey in London employs the inverse of this premise by his use of the 'found gallery ' of the Elephant & Castle Shopping centre of South London for his fourth in a series of 'site specific' projections.
