Rolfe, Nigel, 2016, Show, Exhibition or Event, Breathe Freedom

Abstract or Description:

Breathe Freedom: A drawing, an action, a short work made live. On the columns of free speech below Breathing in and out (box accordion catches its breath). Charcoal drawn text on cloth. Blue tears blinding both eyes preventing clear sight. To make a visual protest against declining democracies and political power moving to the pull of market economies and the far right.

Lisson Gallery, in association with ArtReview Live, hosted an entire evening of rapid-fire talks, films and performances staged on Ai Weiwei’s work, Fondation, a platform made from the ruins of ancient columns. In the open spirit of the Roman forum or Greek agora, speakers discussed the issues of borders, identity and people's role in politics.
