Art and About - Contested Landscapes
What is a loaf of bread worth to you? Over two days, performance artist Robert Guth bakes loaves, offering them to passers-by in exchange for items they consider of equivalent value. He documents the exchanges and sells them on eBay. On the stand to the right of the photo below are some of the exhanged items.
IMAGINE a collaboration between art and science, with creative minds working together to tackle the complex contests for scarce land and resources facing our local communities. Curated by Leo Robba and produced by Anthony Papp, this unique exhibition showcases very individual artistic responses to the science informing current debates on topics such water, land usage, urban development, transport and food security.
