A very nice two part installation features ‘The Whisper’ a photograph of a sculpture by Andre Wallace which was intended for a Homebase car park and ‘Reconstruction of the Atmosphere’ – a modernist-style mobile ‘decorated’ with a motif appropriated from hotel stationary.
Although taken from entirely different places, when placed together the whisperers now appear to whisper about the kissing couple, while the couple consciously ignore the whisperers.
