Artist in Residence, Volkshotel
Curated by Alexandra Landre
"THE SCENARIOS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT' (S.R.D.P) was initiated by the Volkshotel to determine how they could exert control over the guests behaviour using the hotel's existing furniture.
By monitoring the guests use of the current hotel layout, the S.R.D.P team were able to design numerous 'SCENARIOS' using constellations of furniture. Each 'SCENARIO' can be utilised for specific purposes, the various chairs and tables create interchangeable hierarchies. This allows the Volkshotel to bestow or remove status from guests when required.
'SCENARIOS' will be constructed to inform a range of activities such as charity dinners, business meetings, sexual encounters and symposiums."
This project was supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
