Ben Judd presents a participatory site-specific installation in the heart of an existing community. Five temporary, reusable domes will be built on the square of Doddington Estate, Battersea. The work will interact directly both with visitors and the local community by inviting them to help complete the domes’ construction, working alongside architectural practice EVA Studio. Participants can inhabit the domes for Art Night, eating a meal made from locally-sourced ingredients; the spaces will also facilitate discussions around the subjects of community and the urban landscape. By exploring notions of identity, community, engagement and estrangement, this work will actively encourage participants to examine the diverse ways in which social groups can develop.
Feel free to join the building of the domes starting from 2pm on Saturday 7th July. This is an opportunity to work with the artist, architects EVA Studio and local residents to construct one freestanding and three interconnecting geodesic domes, which will then be used during Art Night and Sunday’s Art Trail.
