Newlyn Art Gallery, 2006, as part of Art Surgery with Andy Whall
There was some intentional irony in the working title, as it may or may not have been in the least entertaining.
Transitions is a platform for trying things out in the gallery, works in process. Andy Whall & Delpha Hudson had worked together curating other artists’ work, or worked individually as visual and performance artists but curating themselves was entirely new, as was making theatrical collaborative work.
Visitors to the gallery’s were welcome to watch, engage, ask questions, make suggestions, intervene, extrapolate, and stop disputes if necessary.
The whole process was documented by film maker Alban Roinard, and as complete failure to produce anything was a possibility,if the whole process was a fiasco, we would show the film instead. The show did go on, but the film can also be viewed at
