Mid-Wharf Art and Design (MAaD)
Shown here at Mid-Wharf Art & Design (MAaD) as part of “The Alternative Degree Show Festival: Part 1“, The work aims to inspire cooperative engagement and invites the participants to become collaborators in each other’s experience of the work.
“Tandem (kiik)” 2021 is a tandem adapter which attaches onto any standard park swing. “Kiik” is the Estonian word for swing and in this context is used to refer to the large village swings of rural Estonia which can hold numerous people at a time swinging collaboratively. The work functions under the premise that another person must join you on the swing for it to work. In this sense, your experience of the work in its full capacity is reliant on another and vice versa.
