220 High Street
The venue for Tina O’Connell’s work was a shop on Swansea’s High Street. The installation was viewed through the window from the street. It was an object based installation which consisted of 2 bitumen/polymer cubes that deconstructed over several weeks.
Tina says of her work that it “implies a calculated shift of location and point of view and the indirect collaboration of her and the audience in mapping previously unimagined spaces or re-mapping those taken for granted. Most of the time we would as soon pretend that we are sure of our surroundings and of ourselves than pose the simple question that might abruptly shatter the illusion of dependability”.
