Being Part of the Picture in Skibbereen

At Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen, Ireland, a small, enthusiastic group celebrated Slow Art Day by becoming one with the art. They immersed themselves in the setting for performance artist Amanda Coogan’s durational work, Spit, Spit, Scrub, Scrub. They mingled with the artifacts of her five-hour performances – seeing them as sculpture.

“I thought it was interesting to be spending time looking at one of the places where she had been performing, but without her there – like looking at an empty stage set,” said Alison Cronin, schools coordinator at Uillinn.

“We almost felt like performers ourselves, with other gallery goers looking at us and wondering what we were looking at.”

In the meantime, Slow Art Day Shanghai just reported via email (Instagram is not available in China):

We had a wonderful experience with Shanghai artist Li WenGuang in attendance. We asked the artist to speak to us AFTER we had an extended encounter with his artworks.

He was so interested in our unfiltered experience with this works.

The 1933 Contemporary Gallery features young, undiscovered talent like Li WenGuang.

It was a GREAT event in Shanghai once again – we were all entranced.
