The Park Lane Plinth is a white, stage-like pedestal located in the middle of Park Lane Mall in Downtown Halifax. The Plinth was unveiled during “Tracing The City”, an exhibition and academic conference hosted in Halifax that examined the various strategies employed by artists when exhibiting in public space. The Plinth was one of many featured public installations curated specifically for the conference.
Titled, “Working Things Out”, this installation creates a jarring contrast against the surrounding mall aesthetic and confronts viewers within the most unlikely of exhibition sites: the modern shopping mall.
This installation exhibited for a period of 6 weeks.
