our work

Our artistic outcomes often develop over time as bespoke editions, enabling its creation to reach diverse audiences via different channels. For us, this means that the trajectory of an artwork can be more elastic and shape-shift in response to the needs of various communities. pvi has an enduring history of creative social activism, enacting provocative interventions that draw attention to the dark and powerful forces that control our cities and lives. These interventions unsettle the social fabric through enacting alternative ways ofbeing. They aim to commit ‘good trouble’ and can sow the seeds for making new artworks or be an active response to them.
