Social Sculptures (everybody is an artist) is an installation in which those immortal words by Joseph Beuys that changed attitudes to art and authorship in contemporary art are repeated again and again by three actors. Each actor is directed to employ different ways of delivery (anger, sadness, joy) to convey a range of meanings and emotions.
