Bob & Roberta Smith

Help Build the Ruins of Democracy

11 December 2004 - 3 April 2005

Bob & Roberta Smith are an artistic enterprise, sincere in their ambition to bring anarchy to people’s perception of art through a conceptual yet playful approach to art and art making.

Help Build the Ruins of Democracy featured new and recent work. Eileen (2004) tells the real story of a friend, whose life has been shaped by a series of chance cultural collisions which appear both remarkable on one level but mundane on another. The text was mounted on a structure in the gallery which suggests some form of building. A second work, Conference in Bremen (2004), was shown on a plasma screen and mischievously questions notions of leadership and vehicles for decision making.
