Subset Piece – “Please Stand By” 2019-10-08

Subset Piece – “Please Stand By”

SUBSET, an art collective from Dublin, Ireland , has shared with us their most recent installation at the Bushy Park bandstand in Dublin titled “Please Stand By”. The piece is inspired by the bandstand that has not seen a show in decades.Their goal was to revitalise the space to bring some colour back to the park in hopes that it would usher in bands to play again, and bring more art into the city in general. Below the team explains about the main steps on how things evolved!

How:
We approached Dublin City Council outlining our interest in utilising the space in Bushy Park. We created a concept called – “Please Stand By”, inspired by the unfortunate fact that the bandstand has stood unused for many years. The “Please Stand By” is also relative to the anamorphic perspective of the artwork i.e having to stand in a certain place within the surrounds of the bandstand to experience the effect. Once approved, we began production – using the medium of painted artwork, taking place over 7 days.

Response:
The revival of the bandstand and animation of Bushy Park was supported and encouraged by all visitors to the park, from young children to the elderly. Countless photographs of the artwork were taken and shared on social media. A huge amount of people expressed their support for further creative developments & large scale artworks in the local area.

Here is the link to their website that explains more about the bandstand project: store.subset.ie

The project has already garnered such positive feedback and they plan to continue this series of public space revitalisation.
