James Cooper and Russell de Moura, founders of FUNGUS ARTS COLLECTIVE, along with Roger Simmons trying to put a building back together with tape in Port Au Prince, Haiti.
The project conceptualizes the enormous task of re-building Haiti that also speaks to the human futility and vulnerability that is always exposed in natural disasters
"We based our ‘holding it all together’ tape piece on the idea of finding what is ‘level’ in a very wobbly world. We established a straight horizontal line and then used the coloured tape to symbolically ‘ hold together’ an earthquake-damaged building."
"A fascinating balance of formal beauty and disaster, a deliberate manifestation of a formal beauty that is interrupted by cracks in the wall and the glimpses of figures engaged in clean up activities in the background."
