Participatory guided Art Walks that transform the closes of Dumfries into alternate realities.

The street “serves as a meeting place, for without it no other designated encounters are possible […] The street is a place to play and learn. The street is disorder …. This disorder is alive. It informs. It surprises.” (Lefebvre, 2003 [1970]: 18).

14th & 21st October.
Visit The Stove cafe for directions and information.

11th October 7pm: Artists Talk
12th October 6pm: Public Making Workshop

Andy Zieleniec is an interdisciplinary lecturer at Keele University. Andy is concerned and interested in the way in which our lived environment is moulded and shaped by social practices, either those imposed by power or those challenged or colonised by the everyday of a range of social groups.

Greig Burgoyne’s work unites the process led & rule based. As a broad based drawing practice the role of repetition, duration, endurance, and accumulation are key to its evolution. The results are site-specific live performances, contingent installations and wall drawings. Key to his research is spacial theory- the limits, potential and subsequent absurdity of space –the way space is ‘made’, how it can be activated and the logic (or not) of this.
