The Cage


I may have mentioned them once or twice before but curatorial collaborative a.a.s. are pretty good. They are so good they are currently in residence at Walsall Art Gallery, and for your delights have built.....the cage....

The official blurb goes like this:

During their residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall, a.a.s will be finding and creating portals to The Other Place - a space of dreams and ideas, a space of the future, a space of potential.

They have been exploring this zone in projects such as The Family and Sciencific, where they have created temporary groups with participants, re-interpreting and re-imagining sites and experiencing their environment with ‘new eyes’.

To help them find the specific points of strangeness in this town, a.a.s will be holding free workshops and events, and everyone is invited to participate. A 3m x 3m cage constructed in the Artists' Studio will form the control centre from which information on The Other Place will be gleened and tested. If you would like to find out more call a.a.s on 07806 5027 26 or email aas@aasgroup.net.

I went to see them the other day and this is what I found...

...colourfully filled test tubes sitting on a ledge that later magically made one of a.a.s. disappear before my eyes, she then reappeared with binoculars...


...was it a dream? was it a hallucination? A vision of a member of a.a.s. after sitting the cage for 20 minutes...


and finally my favourite pic from the day...
