The Spirit of the Stairs was an exhibition in which the resident artists of the Basic Space studios in Dublin began to shift their regular group critiques and discussions into direct physical intervention in one another's works. Eventually the studios were cleared away, leaving an exhibition composed of only those things that bore the trace of more than one artist's hand. My contribution involved getting light bulbs to where they were needed.


Flex, lightbulbs, plywood, other people's works


Exhibited in The Spirit of the Stairs, in Basic Space, Dublin, May 2014.
