Behind the scenes
The show's only been open a matter of weeks but plans to 'de-build' De-Building are already well underway.
We'll be starting with the de-install, or to use a better word, recycling, of Peter Robinson's Cache. While other works will be crated and freighted back to their point of origin, Cache won't be returned to the artist's studio, the dealer's stockroom or a private collector's living room. We have a plan, albeit an unconventional one.
Polycut in Sockburn, who supplied the polystyrene that the artist transformed from this...
... to this...
... will compact Cache into neat cubes that will later be used in the production of coat hangers, CD cases and picture frames. Good things never last, or do they?
