The builders continue with their series of projects exploring how the building occupies and relates to the space around it. The first project was to plant seeds found in the walls as an ironic ritual - bringing the past back to life - criticing the notion of the shaman figure within 20 century practice. They then took down all the walls and rebuilt them in a different material before facing them with the material the walls were originally made from - exploring authenticity and the concept of presence and absence. The newest work sees the positioning a red monkey with a tennis racket at various points around the building, highlighting the 3 dimensional nature of the space for a virtual audience, extending this notion of the flat into our understanding of the natural and unnatural whilst cross referencing Alan Partridge as a symbol of the confusion of contemporary identity - sounds like a Giorgio Saddotti work.
