Soft Construction refers to a caring and careful approach to the city. An ‘inverted’ construction site that replaces hard elements with soft, waste with care, irreversibility with composting, reckless abstraction with mindfulness. The surfaces and materiality of the artwork create a quality of stay in the midst of opaque, harsh and exclusionary construction sites. The materials are sustainable. The Euro pallets are pliable and the cement bags bulbous, the roadblocks sag and a yellow sewage pipe snakes around the corner. Anybody is invited to move the elements and use them to sit, lie down and linger.
