Redressed, 2015

re dressed

Tabernacle intervention, Port Talbot, South Wales.

This intervention was one of four site specific works that considered how the Tabernacle’s different rooms might have been used and how their physical positioning would have elevated or demoted them and affected the ensuing architectural choices, related for example to room size and finish.

This new work sought to redress the aesthetic hierarchal balance in the building by redressing this hidden window and placing a greater worth on this space, by mimicking the other stained glass windows within more prominent positions throughout the building, yet by using recycled plastic bags to acknowledge the room’s neglected aesthetic.
