What does “Site Specific” mean?
New York City’s Guggenheim Museum’s offers this definition:
“Site-specific or Environmental art refers to an artist’s intervention in a specific locale, creating a work that is integrated with its surroundings and that explores its relationship to the topography of its locale, whether indoors or out, urban, desert, marine, or otherwise.”
Why do you describe the work as “Site Responsive”?
a sites environment and history informs our productions
artists construct each individual piece for a specific site
as such the productions are non transferable
the performance materials for each production
are constructed by the artists using existing resources within the site
our performance of Sophocles’ Sinon
constructed the Trojan Horse from material native to the site
