Architectural Ritualism

Through the use of performance and graphic interventions Architectural Ritualism explores issues surrounding architecture and questions our social, bodily and historic connections to space.

 

We are exceptionally excited to present this new body of work from Sargent following many conversations we have had with Flatland Project's audiences who have expressed their love for the building we exist in which was formerly a Victorian bathing pool, then turned ice rink, and now the Source BMX park. 

 

Architectural Ritualism is a fictional entity that, through the use of performance and visuals, looks to explore how architectural issues like de-socialisation, function and use, can be manipulated to create speculative and immersive moments, that cause people to question their relationship with and design of modern architecture.

The design takes on a fluid nature that is contextually relevant to the intervention or event that is taking place. However the graphic basis of all of the work is defined by architectural characteristics like stained glass windows that are overlooked as a form of communiction.
