Alice's Bog Seat is an art installation project looking at adult attitudes towards our sexuality, obscure rules & regulations governing our freedom of expression, media misrepresentation of the human form, strong male dominance in the media industries, censorship and many other red light subjects.
The exhibition will be a fun poke with a protesting stick of adventure, plenty of eye openers and lots of interaction. It will be a Wurlitzer like ambience with sounds, sights, smells and the unworldly. The spectator will become part of the exhibit, with every visitor moulding the piece into an embodiment of a society trying to break free.
The exhibition will be an adventure like no other, through ten consecutive booths, all with their own story to tell.
I'm trying to raise funds to allow me to progress my project at this most expensive and physically demanding stage. The money will allow me to live, rent the art studio and purchase the materials that I need. I will also be able to advertise and pre-showcase parts of the installation on the Bi monthly Wakefield Artwalk and at private gatherings.
The end goal is to have the ten booths of my art installation ready for display in either Wakefield or Leeds by autumn.
I will be running a separate funding stream when the time comes to allow me to rent space and transport the installation.
This Crowdfunder will also become part of the project. Every person who contributes will have their name etched onto the project in a hall of fame. (Unless you ask me not to)
