Lounge / Bar was a site-specific piece that sought to wedge
itself firmly in the folklore of Chapter Art Centre. For many
years Chapter has housed a minimal, acoustically challenged
and uncomfortable bar area. For Ffresh 3 this space became a
comfortable lounge bar simulating a traditional local pub complete
with stuffed ferret and old photos.
The fact of simulating a pub environment in an art centre bar
also sought to raise questions of class, gender and the museification
of traditional lifestyles.
