Art lockdown is a record of lockdown, from this corner of the world
During the 2020 Covid 19 UK lockdown, many people felt that they should be spending all this “free” time creating. Painting, learning a language, keeping fit, or eating. The concept of what is free, means that there is time that is tied to something. Free time only exists if there is the natural opposite – work time. As we have been taught to work, as our main function, we have also been given more time.
I say, time is bloody time.
Art lockdown is starting as a record of the things I did, but also the things I didn’t do, during this time. Then I realised it’s not even what we don’t do. It’s not about the doing at all, is it.
Are we staying the same? Are we changing? What is a question without an question mark.
I do not know if I want to go out. I do not know if I want to stay home. I do not know these things anymore. This is what I want to explore.
Please use the contact page if you are in ART LOCKDOWN yourself. If you are an artist and would like to collaborate, you could let me know.
