Are you a Stephanie, Lisa, Candy or Caroline? Would you like to be a part of an artwork? 

Do you know any Stephanie(s), Caroline(s), Lisa(s) or Candy(s)? Would they like to be part of an artwork?

We’re inviting all Carolines, Candys, Lisas, and Stephanies to be part of Darren Bader’s piece, Candy Says, Lisa Says, Stephanie Says, Caroline Says. The more Lisas, Carolines, Stephanies and Candys the merrier. The piece will be one of three music-themed works exhibited on occasion of Bader’s week-39 project at fig-2. 

fig-2 hosts 50 projects over 50 weeks, all taking place at ICA Studio. 

Bader’s approach to sculpture is guided by language and happenstance. An homage to the late Lou Reed, as well as to basic rules of language Candy Says, Lisa Says, Stephanie Says, Caroline Says, invites persons having the four eponymous names to come together and say things: to each other, to themselves, to someone via telecommunication, to fig-2 visitors, etc. It should be a nice game of “she said, she said.” 

Any Candy/Stephanie/Caroline/Lisa is welcome at any time during fig-2 opening hours (Mon 6 – 8pm, Tue-Sun 11 – 6 pm with Thursday open until 9 pm). Due to the nature, of the work, we will have to check ID for proof of name :) 

Once you/Lisa/Caroline/Stephanie/Candy arrive, you/she should introduce your/herself to a fig-2 staff member. We’ll then introduce you to all present Lisas Stephanies Candys and Carolines. We will provide hot drinks and refreshments. 

We look forward to meeting you.
