No Soul For Sale- TATE
A Saturday afternoon spent in the Tate Modern's Turnbine Hall showed [DoR] where we are aiming for. The festival gathered together over 70 independent, artist-led, not-for-profit groups and projects.
The work on show was truely exciting and innovative. Like a business conference, the festival was an opportunity for different groups to find out what each other is doing and also for the public to be presented with a vast array of projects en masse.
The hall really did have a festival feel, lots of people and lots of interactive works involving everyone.
Of particular note to me was:Oregon Painting Society (and friends of our friends at Under the Dust) doing things with plants and electrical circuits and sound...
Leeds based group, Black Dog made a recreated pub...
because these people told me to (Post Museum)...
Hekla Dogg Jonsdottir's Tower of Now(but mainly because it reminded me of Victoria Karlsson's In Passing)
