a back and forth
What is happening here?
Johannesburg Lasts has been hosting a series of small socially-distant interactions on the Melpark Sports Complex’s tennis court throughout the month of November. By utilising the facilities on municipally-owned grounds, these small gestures can be considered an act of assertion to explore the possibilities for public land.
These ‘back and forths’ could take any form.
The only restrictions were:
» The match must fit, and take place, on one standard tennis court at the Melpark Sports Complex.
» The match must not damage or mark the surface of the court, net or surrounds in any way.
» The match must take place in the daytime.
