D.A.F.T. Related events & participants: THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL in Trollhättan

Fred Lindberg started THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL as a society and network of contemporary artists in London 2005. The thought behind these art events was to put people and ideas together rather than single pieces of art. To create a foundation for collaborations. In 1937 Hitler exhibited “Entartete Kunst”, 1962 came Fluxus events like “The Festival of Misfits” and today our Art is striving to exist in-between being singled out as a degenerate, or choosing to be a misfit.

The Dribble Factory contains of Angus being suspended from the ceilling in a harnest, face down, spendig his time dribbling into jam jars placed on he floor below. If his health approves this will endure for a full regular workingday, someone will be present at all time to replace jars and secure safety.

(deviant) participant: Aidan Quigley

Aidan is going to use geometric patterns as skins for found objects. context is not a fixed thing, interpretation of 'artwork' varies with context. perception requires a framework against which to plot deviations from regularity. Pleasure in perception derives from the right mean between monotony on the one side and confusion on the other.

(deviant) participant: Matthew Giraudeau

Among other things Matthew Giraudeau will be the Upside Down Man. (public space performance) -I put trousers on my head, a jumper on my legs, shoes on my hands and gloves on my feet. I then say, “I am a upside down man observe my wonderful powers!” But I say it in badly translated Swedish, “Jag är den uppochnervända manen observerar min underbar överhet”
