For one-night-only, Always Coming Back To You encompasses a range of artistic practices and artworks mounted onto a procession of carnival floats --- from a hot-headed existentialist ice cream vendor to a citadel for the travelling preacher housed in us all; an artist's compass to a float that juggles imagery from the gravedigger scene in Shakespeare's Hamlet and the South African Kaapse Klopse festival; a pugilisté to a Painter determined to clear things up. Always Coming Back To You is a SHOW not a slow exhibit. Committed to finding new ways of exhibiting, co-producing and mediating art, the undercurrent is its interest in visual art practices related to performance and performativity; contemplation interrupted by action. Always Coming Back To You works along the systematic of collaboration, exploring the reciprocal nature of contemporary art practice and the unique potential of art, being both critical and celebratory. In the form of a travelling show, the works embody the nomadic existence, which may once again become viable as a model for artistic survival.
