Eastside Projects – Curiosity Killed the Cat

Curiosity Killed the Cat – Andrew Lacon and Marie Toseland

Me and Nikki took a long (well it seemed very long probably because of how cold it was) walk down to Eastside Projects, Digbeth, Birmingham on Wednesday.





Okay, I will be completely honest. I don’t get it. I read about it. I listened to it. I looked at it. I just don’t get it.

But because we are thinking about the curation of our show I will write about where it is and how it is exhibited.

First of all, if it hadn’t have been pointed out by a member of Eastside Projects I wouldn’t have even noticed it, so I’d say it was quite hidden. Then I question why under a set of stairs? Obviously I wouldn’t know the answer to this question as I don’t understand the work. However, I do find it an interesting way of exhibiting, it’s somewhere different.
All in all, I thought it was sh*t. But then again, that could possibly be because of my lack of knowledge with the piece perhaps?

    I agree with your opinion on it Nadine from seeing it in phoytographs… It honestly just looks like a piece of quirky unwanted furnitrure that has been placed out of sight under the stairs so no one notices it. It seems out of place, an no longer a part of the exhibition by the looks of it.

    Hmmm, but this is it’s very own exhibition, it’s separate from everything else. There is nothing about it. It is boring!
