Transient Gallery/Galleria Temporanea


The Transient Gallery is a mobile, temporary, gallery which explores the significance of everyday functional objects that create or enhance a sense of collective identity across the communities that use them. It presents these often forgotten or overlooked artefacts in a gallery like environment to celebrate their history and encourage debate on the relevance of such shared functional objects in past, present and future communities. Often operating without official consents the gallery was erected in minutes, in situ for approximately one hour in each location and then dismantled as quickly as it arrived. The project was made possible through extensive experimentation and collaboration with artist Tim Taylor, joiners, stone masons and fabricators all of whom contributed significantly to the outcome. The project was delivered on a very low budget and was built, transported and erected by the Architects in locations in Venice, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
