3000 Meters of Caution Tape, Enclosed the Cathedral Gardens in Manchester city centre
Sculpture and Performances Festival in Manchester City, UK
While Entekhabi could not get a visa for the UK and thus was not present at the festival, other festival artists performed his Caution piece in an act of solidarity, wearing a special sign (No Entry - Shahram) on their backs.
Shahram Entekhabi transfers these ideas about confrontation within his sculptures and para-architectural installations (Ongoing Projects since 2001 to date. ). These sculptures/ informal architectures are always constructed in public-spaces and always made from caution tapes suggesting ideas about safety zones and no go areas and importantly who is permitted and not within the public space. These works deal with the dual concept of performance and public space and time.
