Documentation of Crowd Stance, a commission by the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority on the Swanston Street Metro Hoardings in Melbourne CBD. 15 September 2017 - March 2018. Images by Christian Cappurro.
Crowd Stance is an imaginary collective of bodies made up of many feet and
hands, caught in a dance and lifting off the ground. The artwork uses bold
colour, intuitive mark making and cartoon like images of the body in various
forms of action, to playfully mimic the exchange between individual
subjectivity and the collective identity of a crowd. How does the individual consider themselves within, and also separate to
a crowd? What do we project onto a crowd and in doing so, how do we shape a
crowd from within?
