The exhibition presents two approaches to performative practice in the closely-linked fields of contemporary art and architecture, representative of Didier Faustino's obsession with the location of the body in private and public space.


Undomesticated Places presents two projects by the French artist and architect Didier Faustino, one inside the AA gallery and one in the public space of Bedford Square.

The first part of the exhibition, inside the building, contains the video Exploring Dead Buildings 2.0 which recalls the performance realised on the occasion of the 12th Havana Biennial in 2015. An explorer with a video device fixed on his metallic armour constructs a sensitive archaeology of the School of Ballet; a building designed by Vittorio Garatti in the early 1960s.

Outside, in Bedford Square, a second rendition of This is not a love song (first created in Meudon, France in 2014) has been built. This monochromatic performance-architecture is a platform in the urban environment, welcoming everyday events to activate its meaning and providing a site for action in the manner of Speaker’s Corner.
