Ben Judd presents a participatory site-specific installation in the heart of an existing community. Five temporary, reusable domes will be built in the rooftop gardens of Doddington Estate, Battersea. The work will interact directly both with visitors and the local community by inviting them to help complete the domes’ construction, working alongside architectural practice EVA Studio. Participants can inhabit the domes for Art Night, eating a meal made from locally-sourced ingredients; the spaces will also facilitate discussions around the subjects of community and the urban landscape. By exploring notions of identity, community, engagement and estrangement, this work will actively encourage participants to examine the diverse ways in which social groups can develop.
