At first the gallery space seems nondescript in Cassandra Littlehand’s, Struptures, showing this week at the ACCA Pop-Up. The concrete floor is made up of a grid formation of tiles (10 by 4) which initially resembled the minimalist sculpture of Carl Andre.
But as the first visitors arrive and enter the shipping container the cracks begin to form. The weight and movements of visitors cause the concrete tiles to crack underfoot. Some tiles are left whole others are quickly giving in to the pressure and breaking apart.
Walking across the artwork it’s hard not to be aware of its very short term life span – likely to be in complete ruins by the end of the week. Come down while you can still experience this creme brulee moment for yourself.
