The blog of the project
“Like all architecture, a historic site is not a static place, it has a constantly evolving narrative. Contemporary art has the potential to provoke a conversation between the site and its present context. Historic sites are preserved for their cultural-historic value or the aesthetic merit of the architecture or landscape; they have a distinct identity and cultural, emotional and mnemonic associations. Historic sites preserve the past, yet are always in conversation with their surroundings, shaped by the audiences passing through who bring their own contextualisation.”
