A Pointless Protest is a suppression of all strategic considerations, a necessity for any revolutionary demonstrations. The protesters [us] will be playing themselves [ourselves].

About

Wednesday, 22nd of March, from 12pm, we will propose a simplified usage of the freedom of action. Everything starts to have a point and it is impossible to detach ourselves from a message, and yet, our presence in front of the Prime Minister’s Office seems like an inconsequential action. This static demonstration will take the form of a sensual sculpture. Artist Roxman Gatt created a public love sculpture and our love will be privately performed in public.     

‘An Art', 'A Sculpture', Sculpturise me’ responds to the revival of the revolting spirit and the position artists take that focuses on responding to and engaging with contemporary demands. 

A Pointless Protest is a suppression of all strategic considerations, a necessity for any revolutionary demonstrations. The protesters [us] will be playing themselves [ourselves].

This sculptural performance is no longer directed to a goal, nor driven by making a point, but it stands as a practice of inserting ourselves into a space of political weight.

Roxman Gatt is a graduate of Royal College of Art [London, UK] in Visual Communication. Roxman was a selected artist for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016 and will be representing the Malta Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, 2017.

This project is a collaboration curated by 2nd year Ba(Hons) Fine Art students from the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.
