With MoCA’s Art In The Streets entering its last full week, we take a look back through the making of the landmark exhibition courtesy of co-curator Roger Gastman. If you haven’t been visited, do so immediately, AITS closes on August 8th. If there is no way you’ll make it, have a look through our full coverage of the show here.
Craig Coulthard’s Forest Pitch project for London 2012 Cultural Olympiad is reminiscent in a way of Field of Dreams. The art project will feature a full size soccer field hidden within a commercial forest, utilizing felled trees to “create goalposts, a shelter and other infrastructure on site.” Once the two scheduled matches are finished, “the site will be left to grow back naturally, with some native species replanted to encourage a more diverse environment. The shelter will remain as a simple documentation space and observation point, to witness the gradual reclamation of the pitch by the natural world.”
Upon arriving at his spot for the piece, Evol found “an endless meadow.” So instead of building up in the environment, he went down.
“I decided to cut open the idyll, and pretend there is no endless meadow, but only rooftop-gardens of the disgust underneath …”
The 9×9 meter, 1.5m deep piece is beautifully executed.
