DIWO At the Dark Mountain: A Mail-Art project across physical and digital networks in collaboration with the Dark Mountain Project; to question the stories that underpin our failing civilisation and to craft new ones for the age ahead.
Join us at full moon from 3 pm, Saturday 30th January 2010 for our closing event- to take apart and redistribute Mail-Art provoked by the Dark Mountain project.
• Take down the artworks and mail them back out into the world .
• Everyone who comes along gets to take an artwork away with them and to send artworks to friends and acquaintances.
This event is a celebration of the DIWO (Do It With Others) spirit, the collaborative process and excellent contributions from the artists who took part. As well as a chance to reflect on the ideas and controversies generated by The Dark Mountain Project, which provided the focus for the exhibition. There will be eating and drinking!
