Andy Parkinson blogs about the recent one day exhibition Now You See It Now You Don't curated by painter Karl Bielik.
Parkinson writes that "Over the last six years 162 different artists have shown over 300 pieces of work in this now transformed, former wasteland. Exposed to the elements the works have shifted, faded, broken, rotted, remained and in some cases, disappeared. This year 64 artists have added new work... I think part of the motivation for making art is the desire for 'immortality' or at the least, in Alfred Korzybski’s parlance 'time binding', yet here the art decomposes (not quite) in front of our own eyes. Didn’t the Futurists think of museums as graveyards? Here, as autumn approaches, modern and contemporary works take their place in a graveyard that resembles a museum, and whether they like it or not, they all become memento mori."
