Hi again, it’s Jess and Verity, did you miss us? I don’t know about you but I cannot believe how fast Hyperlink has come around, almost as fast as clicking on a real hyperlink! In this blog, we are going to sum up some of our personal highlights at the festival to wet your whistle.
First off have you sent in your art for We are all Artists @ #Hyperlink? There’s some really great work that’s already been submitted and some rather hilarious pieces too! Your work will form an installation on the Turbine Bridge of Tate Modern over all three days of the festival! It will also be entered into a competition judged by Tate Collective. The favourite six entries will win a goodie bag packed full of everything you could dream of; including exhibition tickets and Tate Collective designed t-shirts.
Check out Tate Collective’s very own poster boy Gaby Sahar’s submission:
Now for our top three:
Susan Stockwell will be in the Turbine Hall all weekend making a fleet of ships to rival the Spanish Armada! These boats are exploring trade and travel; so they’ll be constructed of travel tickets, maps and old money. It’s going to be beautiful!
Do you like Acapella? The Boxettes have this in buckets! They can also beat box and dress VERY well! …We hope they’ll be wearing the dresses they have on below, as they’re rocking a cubist/minimal painting vibe.
The Boxettes are playing Saturday night: 19:30-20:15 in the Tanks.
Last but not least, here is a feast… or FEASTival. Food has been selected through a complex mapping system created by Effy. UK locations of the Circuit partner galleries were plotted onto the world map, SIX times, over the continents. This has given us SIX places from across the globe from which to sample tasty treats! Don’t worry if this makes no sense; the food will be nice, so bon appétit!
FREE food sample takes place 15:00-16:00 Saturday and Sunday. YUM!
See you there!
BIG LOVE J&V! KISSES
