My Secession Party
Public commission as part of Iteration:Again



My Secession Party was presented as part of ‘Iteration:Again’, an exhibition of 13 temporary public artworks installed in Hobart and Launceston between 24th September and 15th October 2011. During this period each work changed or developed 4 ‘iterations’ over the 4 weeks.

Over a 4 week period My Secession Party transformed from beginning as a rumour (there will be a new island, the artist is going to secede to this island), to forming through a social action (a procession, a celebration), to developing into an independent island (living independently but in full public view), to disappearing with a farewell celebration.
