THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONGCredit

In front of the Architectural Association's building, in Bedford Square, the second rendition of This is not a Love Song (first created in Meudon, France in 2014) is presented. This pavilion, designed by the architect and artist Didier Faustino is part of his solo show « Undomesticated Places ».
This monochromatic performance-architecture is an open platform in the urban environment, welcoming everyday events to activate its meaning and providing a site for action in the manner of Speaker’s Corner. This installation presents a certain approach to performative practice in the closely-linked fields of contemporary art and architecture, representative of Didier Faustino’s obsession with the location of the body in private and public space.
