Tom Hackett - Shaggy Dog Stories


An art installation of 13 wheelbarrows containing yellow silicone rubber dog forms will be sited in the courtyard at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, in Scunthorpe by Tom Hackett. This is the second part of the on-going project 'shaggy dog stories' and follows on from a series of 'artist' walks using the wheelbarrow dog as a conversation trigger. During these walks Hackett has been collecting phrases and anecdotes from dog owners. These are being assembled into a free artwork in the form of a tabloid newspaper 'shaggy dog stories', to be published this autumn for visitors to take home and read. The text composition will be tangential and fragmented rather than 'straight' journalism.
