It is an exhibition in keeping with my former projects where I invite other artists to make a contribution toward a whole artwork where the outcome is unknown until the variety of dissimilar attitudes are formed.
A group coming together to form a dissident yet coherent whole.
The realising of a potential for the many to be one.
Specific instructions are given by me but with I hope enough freedom and slippage within the remit to illicit an exciting and unexpected conclusion.
In this instance the resulting art will have the appearance of a DARTBOARD game built through adhering to a system of linguistic instruction and be actually physically used as a game by throwing darts into it.
The idea of making holes into, inadvertently constellating, puncturing and deflating an art work could be seen as (amongst a host of other things) a questioning of the overprotective and precious evaluation we tend to equate with art.
