we are for you because we are against them
(A Dinner Party for eight guests)

This living installation invites the public to take on the role of voyeur, and observe an elaborately staged dinner party. Eight preselected volunteer diners participate in this public gesture which combines both elements of the uncanny and absurd.  A normally private dinner party becomes the object of the public gaze. We are for you because we are against them was curated by Liz Burns.
