…blip continues to question alternative uses of vacant spaces in Grimsby, while here and in towns up and down the country the high street faces it’s biggest challenge due to crippling austerity, the advance of online retail options and high business rates.
This time around, the earlier performances will feature in a film installation in our Grimsby Top Town window space.
It’s the first time the films have been shared with the people of Grimsby, who in fact feature in them, as the siting of the camera during filming switched the focus from the performing artists to the shoppers.
Marc: ‘I remember being quite nervous before our breakfast performance – particularly after quite a bit of negative feedback locally in response to our first installation. However, I was quite uplifted by the good-humoured response of passers-by on that grey Saturday morning. That performance seemed to fuel a realisation in the audience that art is allowed to be funny and needn’t feel threatening’
