Abstract: "And Millions and Millions" is a large-scale collage-installation that is manipulated and created by the participating gallery audience; by fixing sheets of paper with recurring geometric designs to the walls of the gallery. The work sets out to explore how an abstract visual language that derives from painting and ideas from site-specific work can be used to facilitate and demonstrate the ad hoc appropriation of a given physical space. The work questions the idea of art works in museums and galleries being static objects, and places the audience in the position of producer. By challenging the idea of solo authorship, technical skill, formal originality and inviting the viewer to add further elements to the installation, the work relates to theories explored in Nicolas Bourriaud’s books “Post-Production” and “Relational Aesthetics”. The material (printed paper) and facilities to do this are an integral part of the installation. The work is intended to proliferate into chaos over the duration of the exhibition and is never resolved.
