Dream Inspires 1999

Wall drawing, dimensions variable, architects model

Brass Art position themselves in the offices of Ove Arup Ltd – the engineering contractors responsible for the regeneration blueprint of Piccadilly Plaza and Gardens. Sited high above the main thoroughfare, the offices enjoy a privileged perspective down onto the city rooftops. Working in a view-less space, Dream Inspires brings the Plaza skyline and proposed scale model into focus by drawing directly onto the walls of the space.
Representing themselves as rooftop activists, or conversely emulating the statuesque poses of the city’s ‘founding fathers’ (and requisite ‘muses’), Brass Art establish a new perspective for themselves from which to view and critically appraise their changing environment.
