The Golden Sack

Rut Blees Luxemburg & Michael Salu

03 Nov 2016 to 08 Nov 2016
 
The City of London is undergoing rapid transformation. The sand sacks that occur in large numbers on the streets of the city are overlooked by-products of the monumental building works currently reshaping London.  This ‘objet trouvé’, almost worthless but containing multiple ambiguous meanings, is the centre of this work. 
Rut Blees Luxemburg, working together with the writer Michael Salu, instigates  a series of ‘billboards’ that feature the ubiquitous sacks.
