A (temporary) installation that tempts an audience to take part, referencing local and global economies and ongoing debate surrounding economic policy in Europe, Spain and Barcelona.
During a residency at Hangar in Barcelona we eat at a number of cafes. If we find that our table is wobbly, we fix it (the wobble) by placing 1€ coins under the offending table leg. We find that they work remarkably well. Future guests who discover our installation are left to decide if they want to take the money (and have a wobbly table), or leave the coins in place.
‘21 wobbly tables, propped up using 44 Euros’ continues the project ‘Waiting for something (bad) to happen’ that took place at Casino Luxembourg Forum d’art Contemporain as part of our research residency ‘The changing of the guard’. After questioning the existence of the money in our pocket, we have now returned the money that disappeared in Luxembourg to its physical material state – with an alternative function and value.
