After a period of interaction with Milton Keynes, its people and architecture, Elena Cologni proposes a site specific performative installation. The public is provided with a set of parameters and props to navigate the space opposite the gallery. Their action in space and interaction with each other will create meanings within the given context. Cologni wants to point the attention to the role of trust within socially engaged practices within our everyday social realm.
The artist will be in dialogue with Caterina Albano who has followed the development of the project.
Wednesday 19th June 2013, 10.45am–5pm, Hugh Aston Lecture Theatre 3.03, De Monfort University, Leicester

The intent is not to arrive at a single answer, but to develop responses that celebrate and articulate the key role that art and design education plays in the cultural, social and economic life of the world.
