Post Works

10 Plans for an Institution

Digital projection (dimensions variable), digital prints (420x594 mm)

Post Works presents ten plans drafted from an historical study of the pavilion asylums and hospitals so ubiquitous during the nineteenth century. In their abstracted forms, the architecture echoes the pattern of synaptic diagrams and cellular drawings.

Post Works is a design practice working across the fields of art, architecture and performance, established by Melissa Appleton and Matthew Butcher in 2008. Recent projects include Stage City, exhibited at the inaugural exhibition at the Gopher Hole, London and a reworking of Allan Kaprow’s 18 Happenings in 6 Parts, part of the Hayward Gallery’s recent exhibition ‘Move: Choreographing You.’ Upcoming projects include Writtle Calling, an experimental radio station in Essex for Autumn 2011 and an installation for the new Shanghai Contemporary Architectural Culture Center in 2012.
