Show-Off aims to mobilise sculptures, paintings, drawings and performances in front of a seated audience,
physically bringing a procession of works to directly ‘meet’ the onlookers rather than the viewer activating
the work through their own movements in space.
Conjuring ideas of a catwalk, cattle market, debutant ball and auction house, art handlers will carry or
direct each work on stage one by one to ‘show them off’. Each work will be professionally lit and illuminated
for a limited time before being carried off stage.
The stage has been conceived and made by Gary Woodley as a design for flexible living.
The stage can be reconfigured in a multitude of ways. Individual plywood units can each be moved,
stacked and rotated to house each artwork in a variety of ways.
