False Floor

Using copper dealers, I decided to make an intervention into the gallery out of the briquettes to fill a whole space. People were able to walk across it with difficulty.

One whole section of the gallery floor has been packed with crushed copper central heating pipes car radiators and electricity wires. Leventon's past study of archaeology comes through in her fascination with de-familiarisation of everyday objects. Beyond any reading of its social implications it is a beautiful piece of abstraction. - Robert Clark, The Guardian

Each briquette: 7 x 20 x 50 cm

Recycled copper.
