A bag full of cooking apples, an empty box and a poster were placed at the entrance of Winchester Gallery; e-posters were posted in Facebook.
This artwork appropriates cultural formats which are: 1. collecting items to help refugees in Calais. 2. Social media marketing. Thus, it blurs the boundaries between art, social and political activism. It is ‘framed’ as an agitation in relation to the ‘cell’ of artists residing in the Winchester Gallery this week as various collected objects invade the space which is constructed by the artists; these objects are not part of the artists’ plan. Furthermore, in bringing these concepts together with the emergency of thousands of refugees from Africa and the Middle East, the term ‘agitation’ is called into question and a re-consideration in the wider political context.
