A Situation For Open Possibilities
A Situation For Open Possibilities is an installation assembled from pre-existing manufactured items which Franco has arranged to tell an open-ended story. The work is completed by the individual relationship of each viewer to the objects. For the opening night of this exhibition, Franco engaged the audience with a performance, investigating a relationship dynamic by invoking a dialogue which casts both the artist and audience as protagonist and antagonist.
You've done this.
You've done this to me.
I do this to you.
