Event description

Description

‘N-SCALE’ is an ambitious, multi-layered art and activism project that commemorates the tragic and needless death of one hundred and eighty-eight factory workers in a Thai toy factory that took place on May 10th 1993.
By remembering the victims of this particular tragedy through a memorial ‘sculpture’, a series of ritual commemorative ceremonies and the formation of an ‘N Scale’ art and activist community. The project intends to address broader and ongoing questions about the systems and politics that underlie the recurrence of the such horrific events and our own complicity in, or responsibility to, them.
It is a project that tests the capacity of art to produce sustained and meaningful responses to the inequities of globalisation and the questions posed to it. This commemorative performance is one of a series of performances and events through which the memorial becomes live, develops and changes.
