Antonio O’Connell is a Mexican installation artist and architect who creates extensions and intrusions into buildings using recycled materials and items from a building’s past. He is fascinated by the contrasting characteristics of architecture, exploring the dichotomy of function through the ephemerality of his structures. These structures reflect the reality of a contrasting world – where imagination is a luxury for some but a necessity for others. For this summer’s programme, O’Connell will create a major new work at the front of Summerhall, incorporating some of the former Vet School’s fixtures and fittings.
