This new work revels in the delerious moment of chance in which nothing and everything is possible. It uses aleatoric compositional and performance methods to recall the liminal space between ludic and real worlds, disorientating and breaking open the new.
Artists' Games Night
happened on Thursday 20 September
Inspired by Spike Island's exhibition Rogue Game, we gathered together a whole bunch of games by and inspired by artists - card games, board games, dice games, chess games, puzzle games, hard games, easy games, experiments, follies and adventures.
