Using an empty shopspace in the business distric of Nassau, Bahamas, work was made using found materials, on a minimal budget over a four day period with a one night only presentation.
"All of the rooms of the store space were left open for viewers to explore, mostly unaltered since the last tenant moved out. Dark and sparsely lit, nothing was hung on the walls and most of the art pieces lay on the floor to be inspected and walked around. In what used to be the back office, the store surveillance cameras allowed a voyeuristic peek at the movements of other visitors. In the storage room a collection of hanging rusted floor fan coverings turned and twisted throwing their shadows over the walls. One of the most intriguing pieces in the show was a mattress supported by four wooden palettes. Around this 'bed' were objects you might find in your own bedroom: a pair of shoes, bedside reading material, trousers slung over the back of a chair. Only when you enter the next room and see a photograph projected onto a screen do you realise that this is not an artistic construct, but rather the relocation of an actual bed found behind the shop."
