STRUCTURES of SUPPORT by Elena Cologni features an interactive, wearable structure in response to the motto 'justice is the foundation of the rules of all kingdoms' by Francis I, Emperor of Austria and written on the Äußeres Burgtor building in Vienna. Performed as a parade, the structures will address our engagement with space, memory and place.
