FAMED, GER / by Peter Haynes


German artists FAMED produced 'WILL I BE MISSED?' for Longbridge Light Festival 2014. The artists installed a neon work above the entrance to Longbridge train station. The text read 'WILL I BE MISSED?' The question 'who' or 'what' will be missed is not only pointing to the past and present, but looks ahead to the future.

The artist duo FAMED produce their work site-specifically. Physical, social and political aspects are considered and transformed into pieces that manifest in a variety of media and often combine architectural, sculptural, textual and performative approaches. They analyse productivity, presence and absence, visibility and the possibility of representation in the context of contemporary art and society.
