Nature still draws a crowd
“Somewhere in the shopping precinct of the future, the Whitgift Centre, there is a little piece of landscaping…. A few rocks and some turf.
Are they a totem to some past god?”

RIGHT IDEA WRONG MACHINE
Right Idea Wrong Machine territory will be furnished with the equipment required to support live Happenings. The first gathering will be held on Friday 31 March, 6 – 9pm when RIWM will play live sound/music whilst simultaneously cooking a meal for everyone present. A final Happening will take place on Wednesday 5 April, 4-6pm to close the show.
Christine McLoughlin will use the space for a process based performance which the audience is invited to engage with. Previously, she made works that used the height of the Turf space and expressed the vulnerability and struggle of health and heart. For this performance, Christine will be developing a narrative about strength, control, failure and success, exploring how we express our sense of achievement and how it relates to failure. Christine wishes to visually record each person’s uniqueness and the originality of the encounter with them, inspired by Marina Abramovich’s ‘The artist is present.’, creating an experience for all of the audience to be a part of. There are to be remnants of the encounters which develop the emotional narrative.
