Fab Open Prize 2014 (Fringe Arts Bath Festival) 23/5/14-8/6/14

Here are the latest photos of Tranquil from the Fab Open Prize, Bath. 

It was interesting to see artworks displayed in a empty shop, a bit different from your conventional gallery set-up. 

I have also included some before and after photos as originally Tranquil was displayed vertically on a plinth. This method of display seemed risky as the piece was slightly hanging off the sides and seeing as it is a ceramic piece we decided to relocate it to a safer position.

I found this piece interacted with the space better when relocated to this new position.

It was also nice to see how this work took advantage of the natural light that came in through the main shop front window and because it was placed on a low level it required people to look at it from above. Additionally as this artwork was situated so close to the street it made me see how this work could potentially interact with the urban environment.
